Why join SFYD?

Following the 2018 elections, the question for many is: where do we go from here? Do you want to be part of the rebirth of the DNC? The San Francisco Young Democrats is one of the largest and most influential democratic clubs in California. We have a powerful voice within the party, the state and the City to push for issues and leaders that elevate young people.

Are you filled with anxious fury with the news coming out of DC? There are issues locally where we can make a difference (housing, immigration, criminal justice, climate change, education, etc.), and we are already gearing up to support 2020 elections.

Are you interested in getting a job in politics, policy or government? SFYD membership will hold workshop and leadership training events to teach you how to achieve your political ambitions. We also hold panels and events where you can connect with local elected officials, learn from policy experts, hear from dynamic speakers, snag an internship and meet your future mentor.

Are you looking for the most effective ways to make a difference as a volunteer? Our PAC committee will keep us informed about important events, pending legislation, campaign mobilizations, voter registration drives, action days and more.

We are building a movement that elevates young leadership. Are you ready to join?
