LARAMIE, WY - On Saturday, April 28th, from 9am - 4:30pm, the Young Democrats of Wyoming (Young WyoDems) will host the 2018 Platform Convention. It will take place at the University of Wyoming Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center in Laramie. Registration for Young Democrats (between the ages of 14 - 35) is free, and participants can register at www.youngwyodems.org/convention. Democrats and observers older than 35 are encouraged to donate $35 to help cover convention expenses. Lunch will be provided and vegetarian options will be available. Traveling Young WyoDems can find accomodations at the Laramie Inn, 262 N 3rd St, Laramie, WY 82072.
The Young WyoDems are the youth-arm of the Wyoming Democratic Party and chartered with the Young Democrats of America. A year ago, the state chapter was revived and in accordance with our Constitution, that means gathering every two years to put together a platform - the ideas and beliefs that govern our organization as a whole. Young WyoDems are encouraged to submit amendments to the platform (youngwyodems.org/platform) and resolutions on Saturday.
Not only is this a great chance to hear from some of the most prominent, influential and progressive voices in the state, it's a wonderful opportunity to connect with other Young WyoDems, gain new skills and ideas through informative training and - most importantly - get fired up and ready to go for the elections in November!
