The Georgetown Progressive is the official publication of the Georgetown University College Democrats and is written exclusively by students at Georgetown University.
The Progressive examines a range of issues, from health care to civil rights to foreign policy. Our goal is to promote the objectives of the Georgetown University College Democrats and the national Democratic Party, as well as the ideals of liberalism and centrism, and to provide a platform for Georgetown students of any background to publish their thoughts and opinions on current events.
All articles are the opinions of the writer and do not necessarily reflect the beliefs or opinions of the editorial staff or the Georgetown University College Democrats.
