You Have Our Appreciation

Fairfax Young Democrats want to take a moment to thank our volunteers for their work during the campaign season. As referenced in the Virginia Young Democrats Youth Vote 2017 memo, the youth vote (18-29) performance was 69 percent and 61 percent for older millennials (30-44). Young voters cast 252,000-plus ballots for Governor-elect Northam, representing slightly more than his margin of victory.

In addition, we want to hear what work worked, what did not work, and what could be improved for the 2018 elections. Join the Fairfax Young Democrats for our volunteer appreciation party and election recap meeting. The meeting will be held at the Fairfax County Democratic Committee office located at 8500 Executive Park Avenue in Fairfax beginning at 7:00 PM. Food and refreshments will be provided. Please feel free to bring a dish as well. Sign up for the party, here

Make Your Voice Heard in Richmond

Democrats had a resounding victory in the statewide and House of Delegates elections. As this new team of elected officials heads down to Richmond, young people need to articulate what they want to see this session in the General Assembly.

Join the Fairfax Young Democrats for our millennial legislative forum. This forum will allow young people to listen about legislative priorities from the General Assembly and we can discuss some of our priorities for this 2018 session.

*Please take the legislative survey to let electeds know what you are about most! http://www.fairfaxyoungdems.net/legislative_survey*

Note: Prefiling of legislation for 2018 General Assembly starts on November 20 and the session begins on January 10, 2018.

The Blue Wave Keeps Rolling

 

After months of hard work, the voters have made their choice. They have chosen to reject hate and division with a message of uplifting all Virginians. Our Democratic candidates had a resounding victory last night all over the Commonwealth. In our home jurisdiction, we were able to take several seats with other seats within striking range. Fairfax Young Democrats would like to thank all the candidates, campaign staff, volunteers, and other great people that helped make this election amazing. This was a strong message to the Donald Trump and the GOP that playing on people's base fears is never a smart campaign strategy. 

What now? 

Fairfax Young Democrats will be hosting several events in the upcoming weeks to close out 2017. Stay tuned to our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and website for more information.
