We, democratic-minded students of Amherst College, have come together to form the Amherst College Democrats as a forum for Democratic politics. We have a responsibility to encourage political thinking, political expression,and political activism at Amherst College.

We empower students to act on the highest principles of the Democratic Party by uniting to promote Democratic ideals in our community. Thus, we work both on and off campus to create forums of, to educate about, and to campaign for the progressive Democratic agenda.
