Honored guests, award recipients, and our 2015 convention playlist!
The Young Democrats of Washington gathered in Yakima for our 2015 convention! Saturday evening was our main event – our 2015 Award Banquet where we heard from progressive leaders and honored the most hard working among us.
Our convention theme was “What’s Next?” A huge thank you to our three speakers who shared their stories that highlighted the future of our party and the progressive movement – Yakama Tribal Council member Asa Washines, Washington Dream Act Coalition activist Moses Chege, and State Senator Pramila Jayapal!
