The Michigan Federation of College Democrats (MFCD) is looking to establish new College Democrats chapter across Michigan as we prepare for the 2018 and 2020 election cycles. Young people across the state are passionate about resisting the Trump/GOP agenda and demanding progressive change for our country. College Democrats are on the front-line, educating their communities about important issues (e.g. the environment, women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights), registering and turning out student voters, volunteering on Democratic campaigns and working with politicians to lobby policy.
MFCD is officially linked to College Democrats of America (CDA) and the Michigan Democratic Party but is operated by our elected executive board. By chartering your College Democrats chapter with MFCD, you and your membership will have access to the following benefits:
+ A Regional Director assigned to help your chapter grow and succeed+ Ability to connect and collaborate with other College Dems chapters across the state+ An invitation to our Fall and Spring conferences where you can network with other College Dems and participate in our many informative break-out sessions+ A comprehensive, constantly-updated list of progressive jobs, internships and volunteer opportunities across the state+Funding opportunities+ Our comprehensive Membership Guide with guidance on fundraising, social media, voter registration and GOTV, phone-banking and much more (coming August 2018)+ Ability to join our Women's and LGBTQ+ Caucuses + Eligibility to run and vote in MFCD elections+Potential to get involved in national politics through CDA
No matter what stage you are in your College Dems journey, whether you already have a chapter established or are just beginning to think about creating one, MFCD will support you.
In particular, we are looking for students to help create new chapters at:
+ Lansing Comm. College+ Kellogg Comm. College+ Macomb Comm. College+Lake Superior State University+Northwestern Michigan College+Kalamazoo Valley Comm. College+ Jackson College+ Adrian College+Aquinas College+UM Flint
