Sep 02, 2008

MADISON – Last week at the College Democrats of America (CDA) National Convention in Denver, Colorado, Wisconsin student Analiese Eicher was elected National Chair of the CDA Women’s Caucus. 

“It’s an honor to be leading the Women’s Caucus during this historic election,” said Eicher. “I look forward to working to elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden to the White House. Both are public servants who recognize the importance of choice, access to birth control, adequate health care, and equal pay for women.”  

“In addition, we are excited to be re-launching our ‘ABCs of HPV’ program on college campuses across the nation,” she added.

Eicher is a junior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in political science. She has been active in the College Democrats of Wisconsin as the Women’s Issues Director for the past two years and was previously the CDA Women’s Caucus Campus Outreach Director. 

“We are so proud of Analiese and we congratulate her on this important position,” said Jason Rae, Chair of the College Democrats of Wisconsin. “I cannot think of someone more qualified to lead the CDA Women’s Caucus than Analiese Eicher.” 

The College Democrats of Wisconsin is the official youth arm of the Democratic Party of Wisconsin. CDW has chapters at most two and four year universities across Wisconsin and works to involve young people in the party.
