Young People & Students

Students and young Americans have long played an important role in the Democratic Party—perhaps never more so than in Barack Obama’s historic campaigns. While young people and students represent our next generation of leaders, they realize that we can’t wait to tackle America’s foremost challenges. Just as we learned in 2008 and 2012, students know that if we work hard enough, and if we fight long enough, we can finally bring change to Washington and to our country.

Students and young people have embodied the spirit of that movement for change—from their work on health reform to student loan reform and more.

Nationally, Democrats work to keep college affordable, while here in New Mexico we fight for quality public education, so that every New Mexican has a chance in life for a better future.
