[link removed] [[link removed]]Hey John -
We hope you join us for our AYD Earth Day Trivia Night [[link removed]] this Wednesday, April 21st at 7pm! We’d also like to thank all of our delegates that participated in the Virginia Young Democrats Convention this past weekend. Congratulations to two of our members on their re-elections to the Virginia Young Democrats Executive Board:
Sam Bauman, VAYD Membership Director
Mike Hemminger, VAYD National Committee Rep
We also now have several AYD members in the VAYD Issue Caucuses:
Michael Angeloni, Disabilities Caucus Chair
Adam Chaikof, Labor Caucus Chair
Sacha Brenac. Faith Caucus Vice Chair
Noah Mutterperl, Health Caucus Vice Chair
AYD will also be represented in the VAYD Regional Caucuses:
Matt Royer, Northern Region Chair
Congratulations again to all!
Unfortunately, we’re again taking a moment to recognize instances of police brutality and gun violence in this country. It feels as if this is the only thing that has been in the news cycle for the past several weeks and it’s hard not to feel worn down. Our hearts ache for the victims in Chicago, IL [[link removed]] , Indianapolis, IN [[link removed]] , and Austin, TX [[link removed]] . We encourage you again to stay informed, but take breaks when you need to and do not confuse rest with inaction. Make sure you take care of yourself so you can adequately support others by spreading awareness, donating if you can, and calling your representatives.

Our Housing, Environment, & Infrastructure Caucus Chair Nicole Merlene will be hosting this virtual event full of facts about the environment from the local to the worldwide level! 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!
