Hey John -
Ramadan Mubarak! Wishing all those who celebrate a safe, peaceful, and enjoyable Ramadan.
Sadly, we are taking another moment to recognize recent instances of police brutality and gun violence across our nation in Virginia Beach, VA, Takoma Park, MD, Brooklyn Center, MN, and Knoxville, TN. We must not let ourselves become numb to these tragedies and must continue to fight for institutional change. We encourage you to stay informed, spread awareness, donate if you can, and call your representatives.
In addition, The Virginia Young Democrats Convention registration deadline has been extended, so don’t forget to register by April 14th.
Check out more upcoming events below:

No need to form teams beforehand, we will assign folks upon arrival so everyone feels welcome.
There will be four rounds of trivia with five questions in each round. After every round, you will be put in a breakout room with your assigned team to deliberate and submit questions before coming back to the main room. Prizes to be announced! Feel free to hang around and chat after trivia to get to know your fellow Young Dems as well.
