Welcome to the Michigan Federation of College Democrats!
Young people are the largest voting block in the country, and we are raising our voices for change. We, as College Democrats, work to empower college students across Michigan to take political action to make positive change for their communities. We mobilize and connect students to elect Democrats up and down the ticket and to advocate for the issues that we care about. Our members are knocking doors and making phone calls for candidates in Michigan's most contested races and are promoting bold, progressive policies in Lansing and in Washington. MFCD alumni go on to be campaign managers, county party chairs, and candidates themselves. Our organization will always welcome everyone because our future is a shared one. We know that when college students vote, Democrats win. We invite you to join us and make a difference.
Ethan Petzold, President
