YDA Announces National Endorsements

YDA Announces National Endorsements

Sep 27, 2012 | | | 0 Comments

YDA is excited to announce our list of endorsed federal candidates and statewide ballot initiatives that we are actively supporting in 2012.

Last month we asked our state chapters to suggest some of the most talented, competitive young candidates running for Congress, as well as other candidates of any age who have shown a particular commitment to youth issues.

We’re calling it the YDA Millennial Promise Project – a group of promising candidates close to the Millennial Generation or candidates who have promised to support the priorities and values of young Americans.

Make a contribution today to help support YDA’s Political Action Fund & our 2012 Millennial Promise Project

The YDA Millennial Promise Project is a uniquely grassroots effort.  Funds will be raised by our members across the country to support candidates and issues identified as top priorities by our peers on the YDA Campaign Committee.  It’s a program that’s of, by and for young people.

Please give $10, 25 or 50 to help support the YDA Millennial Promise Project

There are just 40 days to go to help protect the progress of the past four years and to ensure Democrats once again control Congress.  Let’s make every hour count!
