Peninsula Young Democrats (PYD)


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. Our members (and ex-members) consist of local and state elected officials, various commission and board members, Democratic Club and Party leadership, staffers, students, and young professionals from diverse fields and backgrounds.

We have been extraordinarily effective, helping shape party priorities, campaigning for candidates, registering local voters, and educating the public about important issues. 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 under the age of 36, living South of San Francisco and north of San Jose in the San Francisco Peninsula. You must also pay dues to the Peninsula Democratic Coalition. We can also help you connect with our various sister clubs in San Jose, San Francisco, Marin County, and the East Bay.
