One day, two Prides! Young Democrats go out in Tacoma and Vancouver.
Vancouver Pride in the Park!
The Clark County Young Democrats were at Vancouver pride in the park. They Tabled for many local candidates including #YDWA priority candidate from the 17th LD Rep Monica Stonier. Also they registered dozens of young people to vote.
There were great organizations at pride such as The Human Rights Campaign, Planned Parenthood, and many other groups that believe and fight for equality. #YDCC is very pleased to be a part of such a strong community building event.
Out in the Park, Tacoma Pride!
This year, the PCYDs set up a booth at Tacoma’s Out in the Park Pride festival. Thanks to Melissa Vincett’s design skills, they were able to inform the public about the PCYDs and YDWA. They also collected over 50 signatures for the Queer Caucus petition in support of Patty Murray’s bill, the Tyler Clementi Higher Education Anti-Harassment Act that prevents discrimination in college campuses that accept federal funds. Congressman Derek Kilmer dropped by to get a selfie with the PCYDs. Finally, because they love to give back to the community, they gave away 4 pounds of candy.
