The Hopkins College Democrats are committed to enriching the political experiences of the Hopkins student body. We hold weekly meetings to recap the week’s news and have spirited debates on current issues.
In the past, we have hosted many events to promote awareness and take action towards a more progressive campus community. We have partnered with the JHU Sexual Assault Resource Unit to educate students on Title IX and garner signatures for a petition to reform JHU’s sexual assault policy. We have also hosted forums with speakers such as the US Senator from Washington DC Michael Brown.
We host two debates with the Hopkins College Republicans each year on a range of issues e.g. minimum wage, NSA, intervention in foreign conflicts, etc.
Each election season, we canvass for a democratic candidate who we believe promotes our ideals. In the past we have gone to PA, VA, and many other states.
We often also co-sponsor events alongside the Foreign Affairs Symposium when democratic speakers are invited to our campus.
