From planning a run for office to socializing with dynamic young leaders, there are opportunities to engage with the East Bay Young Dems on a variety of levels.

Do more than just vote. EBYD will help you connect with the electoral process

  • Meet the people seeking local and state offices at EBYD’s candidate forums.
  • Endorse the candidates who champion issues that matter to us and who we think deserve our support.
  • Learn about local and regional races.
  • Be a part of the decision-making process: help pick a handful of races where we can affect the outcome through direct involvement.
  • Debate and discuss ballot initiative campaigns that affect the future of our state.
  • Get Out The Vote! EBYD makes getting involved in local and state campaigns easy and available by organizing canvassing, phone-banking, happy hours, and house parties during the election season.

Meet and network with politically engaged young people

  • EBYD helps organize Mix It Up, a monthly happy hour for young progressives in the East Bay.
  • Expand your network and learn more about issues that are important to your community through special events and socials that EBYD convenes and co-sponsors with other organizations.

Ensure that young people have a voice

  • We encourage and support young leaders who are running for elected office and we have a track record of helping them win.
  • Learn about and participate in trainings and workshops designed to help young people win elections.
