We aim to connect the MIT community with local politics by publicizing opportunities such as serving as a representative on Cambridge’s Ward 2, which includes most of MIT’s on-campus housing, and becoming a delegate at the Democratic State Convention and setting the state party platform.
Voting at MIT
We organize voter registration events and mobilize students to vote locally. We’re also working with the administration to get incoming students automatically registered.
We support progressive issues, movements, and leaders through endorsements and fundraising.
We’re responding to recent developments in national politics by organizing regular phonebanking and letter writing events, collecting representative and informative news articles, and writing regular updates on our blog.
Technology in politics
We want to emphasize the role technology can play and the impact scientists and engineers can have by
hosting a data science lecture series with the Economics and Political Science departments. We’re also working on connecting MIT students with progressive causes in need of technological help.
Exploring political philosophy
We’re working to find common ground with the MIT Republicans and eventually publish a bipartisan science journal as a guide for lawmakers. We’re also collaborating with Economics undergrads to learn about alternative economies.
