Women’s Caucus

CDMD Women’s Caucus

The College Democrats of Maryland Executive Board has created our first caucus: the CDMD Women’s Caucus! The College Democrats of Maryland Women’s Caucus serves to inclusively promote women’s advocacy and women’s rights; inform citizens on local, state, and national politics; and elect Democratic female candidates to public office.

Anyone who is interested in being a general member should fill out the general membership form to get your contact information so the chair can reach out to you. If you have any questions about positions or the caucus in general you can email us at womenscaucus@mdcollegedems.org.
