HC College Democrats Preamble
In the goal of creating a more just and equitable society where
citizens have access and opportunity to gain quality healthcare,
a fair and living wage, a secure retirement with governmental
aid and protection, a life free from division and strife based
upon race, religion, gender, ethnic origin or nationality, age,
and sexual orientation, along with other hallmarks and cornerstones
of Democratic Party ideals, we officially organize and join together
as the Holy Cross College Democrats, a chapter of the College
Democrats of America. We hereby dedicate that we will strive to
work for and acheive the beliefs of the Party and our own consciences
in our activities on campus and wherever else our actions lay.
In clear coordination with these goals, let it be known from this
day forward that membership in the Chapter of the College Democrats
will be open to all, and not subject to any discrimination, including
but not conclusively: race, gender, religion, ethnic origin or
nationality, age, and/or sexual orientation.
