To all CCD alumni, thank you for once being a crucial part of CCD and congratulations on your accomplishments since then!
Because of your past work, the California College Democrats have a rich heritage of advocacy and action on the issues about which students care most. From mobilizing support on university campuses across California for the passage and renewal of Proposition 30 to fund education; to busing students across the state for our targeted district campaign invasion program in the most contentious races over the past few years; to rallying student support for solutions that address the issues of mental health, sexual assault on college campuses, and student homelessness and food insecurity, CCD has always been on the front lines of activism. As you may remember, our chapters and our members don’t wait for a better future, we make it.
Now that Donald Trump and his cronies seized control of the federal government, our state is under threat. Students, especially those of color, the undocumented, and those who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community, all face uncertainty. We must fight for them and we will. Yet our work to protect our rights and our fellow students cannot continue as vigorously as it has without the generosity of our patrons and alumni.
I hope you consider becoming a founding member of the CCD Alumni Council. By joining the CCD Alumni Council, you will be recognized on a dedicated page of our website (www.cacollegedems.org) and all our social media as one of our proudest patrons; you will be welcome to attend all CCD events at discounted rates; you will be kept apprised of our work through a quarterly conference call with our Board in which you may solicit your input towards the direction of CCD; and you will be listed as a sponsor in CCD’s electoral work, campaign invasions, and campus mobilization efforts.
To join the 2017 Alumni Council, I ask that you commit to donating at least $150 by visiting: www.cacollegedems.org/alumni
Help us keep our Golden State progressive and blue!
CCD President 2016 - 2017
