Fantastic news! MYD won Outstanding Large Chapter of the Year at this year’s Young Democrats of America conference in Louisville!
This is the third consecutive time MYD has been recognized for our work — that’s six years in a row. We’re very excited to continue setting the bar for YD chapters across the country and continue to innovate and create new ways for young progressives to engage in our communities.
Thank you to everyone who made this possible — current members and leaders of MYD, our very supportive alumni, community leaders and elected officials, and our grassroots allies.
We’re also thrilled that so many of our fellow New Yorkers won awards and were elected to national positions, including MYD’s own Michael Corbett and Sam Hudis!
Michael Corbett – 3rd Vice President of YDA
Sam Hudis – Vice Chair of Outreach for the YDA Jewish Caucus
Dustin Hausner – Chair of the YDA Disabilities Caucus
Samina Hydery – Chair of the YDA High School Caucus
Joe Coe – Vice Chair of the YDA LGBT Caucus
Matthew Silverstein – Chair of the Military and Veteran’s Affairs Caucus
Michael Gilberg – The YDA John F. Kennedy Award
Rockland County Young Democrats – Outstanding Small Chapter of the Year
And don’t forget — we aren’t the only ones “getting stuff done” and receiving recognition for it. Mark your calendars for Young Gets It Done, our annual party and awards ceremony to celebrate 5 amazing emerging leaders in New York City. The event will take place on August 24th at 7:30PM and tickets are only $10 for members! Buy tickets here and RSVP on Facebook for updates here.
