The University Democrats at the University of Virginia serves as the arm of the Democratic Party on Grounds. Through campaigning and educational programs, we seek to elect progressive candidates and stay engaged with pressing issues. UDems meets weekly to hear from speakers or hold campaign events, and we often have extra phone banks, text banks, and canvass trips throughout the week. Additionally, UDems fosters a welcoming community for left-leaning students through frequent social events.
