The University of Pennsylvania Democrats is a student-run political organization open to all members of the Penn community – undergraduate and graduate alike. Our mission is to promote progressive political values on and off campus, through dialogue and action. Penn Democrats is the largest campus political organization at the University of Pennsylvania and is a hub for stimulating political discourse. We work closely with Democratic campaigns–at the municipal, state, and national levels–to support the election of progressive candidates to public office. Members of Penn Democrats participate in political campaigns, organize on-campus lectures and rallies, conduct voter registration drives, engage in debates, circulate petitions, and seek to stimulate discussion through issue-based activism.
Although we promote progressive politics, we have great diversity of opinion among our members and welcome all Penn students to our events, regardless of political affiliation.
