4/25/2023 -- THE DYC HAS OFFICIALLY LAUNCHED THE YOUTH FOR JOE BIDEN CAMPAIGN
Youth were key to Biden-Harris's victory in the 2020 election. Youth will be the key to the 2024 election. The Democratic Youth Coalition is proud to launch the Youth for Joe Biden campaign to support the Biden-Harris campaign's re-election. By establishing a coalition of youth from across the nation, we will foster robust support and integrate youth voices into the Biden-Harris campaign.
The Democratic Youth Coalition represents an inclusive national grassroots movement of young activists participating in civic engagement programs that support progressive and democratic campaigns and causes. The youth vote is extremely important, not only for presidential elections, but for all future elections, and our work will ensure that the United States continues to receive strong youth and student engagement.
