OF WARD 6

The Young Dems of Ward 6, a committee of the Ward 6 Democrats, 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:

 

  1. Empower participants as educated activists in Ward 6 through issue sessions, training opportunities, and mentorship led by established political and Democratic Party leaders,  

  2. Foster a diverse community of volunteers and activists to expand get-out-the-vote (GOTV) efforts and support Democratic Party candidates, and 

  3. Recruit and develop future leaders in the Ward 6 Dems, DC Young Dems, and the DC Democratic Party. 

 

In 2021, the Young Dems of Ward 6 established the Young Dems of Ward 6 Steering Committee. The committee organizes programming aimed at engaging Young Dems in Ward-level activities across the Ward. 

 

During 2021, the committee hosted monthly in-person and virtual events focused on connecting young leaders with political and policymakers in the Ward and each other. These events included:

 

  • Virtual “Issue Session” series featuring Commissioner Amber Gove (Chair, ANC 6A), the District Task Force Jails & Justice, Bo Shuff or DC Vote, Raffi Freedman-Gurspan of All on the Line

  • Happy Hour with Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen

  • #DemocratsCare community service events with beautification and eldercare philanthropies

  • The launch of the “Meet Your ANC” series featuring Ward 6 Advisory Neighborhood Commissioners Corey Holman, Alison Horn, and more coming. 

  • Open virtual workshops with Young Dems in the Ward to guide future programming and issues
