The Young Dems of Ward 6 serves as the gateway to Democratic politics in Ward 6 for young activists and professionals ages 36 and under. Launched winter of 2020, the Young Dems of Ward 6 has three primary goals:
Empower participants as educated activists in Ward 6 through issue sessions, training opportunities, and mentorship led by established political and Democratic Party leaders,
Foster a diverse community of volunteers and activists to expand get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts and support Democratic Party candidates, and
Recruit and develop future leaders in the Ward 6 Dems, DC Young Dems, and the DC Democratic Party.
Starting January 2021, YDW6 launched its inaugural Issue Session series. The series - exclusively for Young Dems of Ward 6 - connects members with local elected officials, c-suite advocacy leaders, and national activists in an intimate (virtual) roundtable format. The sessions are a unique and exclusive way to have direct conversations with political and advocacy leaders in the issues that you care about most.
Issue Sessions are held the fourth Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. During the COVID-19 public health emergency, issue sessions will be held virtually via Zoom.
