YDWA Goes to LA for the Young Democrats of America Convention!

This is a lot like our own convention each year – with trainings from industry leaders, an opportunity to shape the platform and contribute to the charter and bylaws, and to meet and form relationships with Young Democrats from near and far. Here are a few of the highlights from our trip:

Congrats to Taehlor Crim for being elected the Vice Chair of Development for the College Caucus!
