The Young Democrats of America (YDA) is the largest youth-led, partisan political organization in the nation. The Young Democrats of America mobilizes young people under the age of 36 to participate in the electoral process to elect Democrats, influence the ideals of the Democratic Party, advocate for progressive issues, and train the next generation of progressive leaders. The Mid-Atlantic Regional conference (held every 2 years) is a gathering of young progressives from Maryland, D.C., Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania
The Young Democrats of America has over 150,000 members nation-wide in chapters in 48 states and U.S. territories – including high-school and college students, young workers, young professionals, and young families – Our membership reflects the broad diversity of our nation and the Democratic Party. Our programs engage Young Democrats through their local county, college, or high-school chapters, through state and regional programing, and nationally through events like our quarterly national meetings, national convention, issue advocacy, and academies.
The Young Democrats of America has been the official youth arm of the Democratic Party since its founding in 1932. At this meeting, you will hear from regional leadership, guest speakers and we'll of course talk 2020. Registration includes all programming and lunch.
