In order to promote a better America, with equality, opportunity, and freedom within a just and stable society, we the Washington College Democrats (WCD) dedicate ourselves to organizing the participation of all like-minded members of the community at Washington College. Pivotal to Washington College Democrats mission is the need to embrace and value the diversity of our members. Acknowledging the uniqueness of each, we seek to cultivate an environment that encourages freedom of expression. We are committed to building a group of people who are as diverse as the voting population that we are apart. We encourage and promote a diverse organization; therefore, we are committed to maintaining processes and procedures to foster an inclusive and multicultural body through recruiting and activating members, voters, and volunteers. We are determined to reflect diversity amongst our executive board and dedicated members. While the mission of our organization is to promote the principals and ideals of the Democratic Party, we realize that not all Democrats think alike, and we welcome the various ideas and viewpoints of all our members. In this mission statement we call for full participation of all students regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, physical handicap, socioeconomic status, or sexual orientation.
