Reviewing the College Democrats' Constitution

The College Democrats of New York, like other organizations, has a Constitution that outlines the shape and purpose of our organizations. Our mission as a student organization is to help elect Democrats from the grassroots level up, train and engage new generations of democratic student activists, shape the Democratic Party with voices from America's youth, and to become a potent political voice on the issues that impact the student population. But every so often, the rules and procedures we follow in that mission need updating.
