GUEST ROOM | Statement from the Campus Corps Leaders of Cornell Students for Bernie

Last week was a difficult time for Cornell for Bernie. Our organization began in August, with five people handing out registration forms at Ho Plaza. Since then, we have grown into the most vocal and impassioned political group on campus for progressive politics. Here on  Cornell’s campus, we take great pride in what we were able to accomplish: A nearly 160 person strong base of supporters, thousands of phone calls made, countless buttons and flyers handed out, policy discussion and debates held and even a weekend trip to knock on doors in New Hampshire which we won. But what makes this movement stand out is its status as the largest resurgence of the American Left since the 1960s.
