From advocacy to fundraising, to social events and campaign support, as young Democrats we continue to be a driving force within the Democratic party and progressive movement at all levels. Some of us work in politics professionally: on campaigns, and at all branches and levels of government. Others are students or work in non-political jobs and are political activists in their free time.

We welcome all Democrats under the age of 40 to join our group, get involved, and make a difference in Franklin County! There are many ways to do this on a reoccurring basis. The easiest way – join a committee!
