Dear College Democrats,
Welcome! We are the Michigan Federation of College Democrats (MFCD), a statewide coalition of College Democrats chapters from the U.P. to Detroit and everywhere in between. As an official youth branch of the Michigan Democratic Party, MFCD brings college students together to fight for economic justice, social equality, and Democratic victories on our campuses and throughout Michigan.
If you’ve ever found yourself frustrated by a bill that your congressman or state legislator has introduced, or if you’ve ever been angry with the Governor for cutting education funding, restricting women’s choices over their own bodies, and discriminating against our LGBT citizens, then College Democrats is for you.
For over 15 years, Michigan Federation of College Democrats members have been working on campuses to politically engage students on a local, state, and national level. We are the ones bringing elected officials to campus, registering voters in the student center, hosting State of the Union watch parties, and knocking on dorm room doors during election season. MFCD has been working hard to make sure that students stay involved in the political process from before election day all the way up until a piece of legislation is signed or vetoed.
In this website, you will find information about our organization, contact information for our leaders and our chapters, events that you can attend, internship information, how to get involved, and more.
Our chapters have produced a wide variety of leaders in the state, including legislators, congressional staff, and party officials. To be part of our team, join your local chapter today. If there isn’t a chapter on your campus, reach out to the MFCD executive board and we will talk about how we can help your campus set one up.
Together, we can be the change that this state needs.
