We are Louisville Young Democrats.

Louisville Young Democrats exists to cultivate an environment for young people to turn new ideas into action and bring new energy for a better Louisville. Founded in 2015, we are the largest partisan, youth-led political organization in Jefferson County. Our membership reflects the broad diversity of our community and the Democratic Party.

Part of making the change you want to see is being at the table where the decisions are made. I’m grateful to serve on the Board of this amazing organization, because I believe in democracy, and want to help create space for others who’ve been the most disenfranchised, disregarded and disrespected.
