WHO WE ARE
The Young Democrats of Wyoming (YDW) support, educate, and empower Young WyoDems across the Equality State to run for office -- and win!
The Young Democrats of Wyoming mobilizes young people between the ages of 14 and 35 to participate in the electoral process to elect Democrats, influence the ideals of the Wyoming Democratic Party, advocate for progressive issues, and train the next generation of progressive leaders.
The Young Democrats of Wyoming has hundreds of members statewide – including high-school and college students, young workers, young professionals, and young families. Our membership reflects the broad diversity of our state and the Wyoming Democratic Party. Our programs engage Young WyoDems through their local county, college, or high-school chapters, through events like our quarterly state meetings, platform convention, and issue advocacy.
Community and college-based and local organizing are the cornerstones of our efforts and the Young Democrats of Wyoming remains committed to supporting our local chapters with the tools they need to succeed and grow.
WHAT WE DO
We organize from the bottom up in every precinct, statewide party structure, to the corridors of power in our state capitol. We work for progressive change through disruption of the flow of politics as usual. We lead by amplyifying the voices of young people across Wyoming.
The Young Democrats of Wyoming support Democratic candidates and causes in the races that matter most. Through organizing volunteer shifts, speaking to voters at their doors, and collecting signatures for critical ballot drives, YDW mobilizing in elections make a difference.
Without truly understanding policies that inform Democratic principals and how they are applied to the world around us, we cannot be effective advocates for reform and accountability. We strive to equip every Young WyoDem with resources by providing issue-based discussions, educational programming, and expert panelists.
After the 2016 elections, we're seeing a surge of interest in politics. That's why we are working to channel that energy to make progress on issues like job creation, racial and gender equity, immigration policy, healthcare reform, and clean energy.
Come for the issues, stay for the people. YDW is an inclusive family of young activists, politicos, policy wonks, campaign staffers, and community members.
