In addition to our issue committees, we also have a number of different teams that our members can get involved with!
The College Democrats Outreach Team seeks to build progressive power on campus by developing relationships with various organizations on campus. Members of the Outreach Team facilitate one-on-one leadership meetings in order to build connections and promote collaboration on events. The team also participates in emerging coalition meetings to encourage unity within the campus community. By connecting groups to political work and elected officials, the outreach team bridges the gap between campus activism and broader political work.
The social media team is in charge of managing the Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages for College Democrats. The team also manages the Facebook and Twitter for each of our three issue committees (FemDems, JustDems, and Stonewall). The Social Media Coordinators work with the Communications Director to craft messaging, create audio-visual content, and update the campus community about exciting events. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @CollegeDemsatUM!
In its inaugural year, the Membership Team strives to recruit, retain, and engage members, increase inclusivity in the organization, and increase intra-organizational cohesion. It works individually with committees, plans social events, and works diligently to create one-on-one connections across the organization. It's imperative that every member feels valued, heard, and important-- which is why it is a priority to dedicate time and effort to these initiatives. By connecting the organization and harnessing the full potential of all members, College Democrats can do its best advocacy and political work.
