Caucuses

Caucuses chartered with the Young Democrats of Washington are the advocacy arm of the organization. They are managed by the Government Affairs department and charged with completing caucus projects each year. They often host events, work with the Communications Department to conduct research projects, and share YDWA’s perspective on current affairs via social media and caucus blogs.
