About the PYD:

Whether you are looking for friends, mentors, professional connections, people to help with an ambitious civics project, or places to volunteer, PYD (Peninsula Young Democrats) is the group for you. We host and sponsor fun events, intellectual discussions, and opportunities for political activism. Get the inside scoop and get involved in local politics. Network with elected officials, staffers, students, and young professionals from diverse fields and backgrounds.

We have been extraordinarily effective, helping shape party prorities, campaigning for candidates, registering local voters, and educating the public about important issues. More is on the way! But to reach our goals (including helping you with YOUR goals), PYD is looking to grow our membership and develop future leaders. We want you to help shape this club.

Connect with us today and join us at our upcoming events. Many of our events are open to people of all ages, regardless of political party. However, we can only offer official membership to registered Democrats age 35 and under, living or working on the San Francisco Peninsula. We can also help you connect with our sister clubs in San Jose, San Francisco, and the East Bay.
