ABOUT AYD
Arlington Young Democrats
PO Box 7132
Arlington, VA 22207
The Arlington Young Democrats is an
organization of Arlington citizens,
ages 18-36, committed to furthering
the principles of the Democratic
Party, making an impact in the
Arlington community and providing
networking and social opportunities
for young people in Arlington. The
organization reaches over 1500
people weekly and is the largest local
Young Democrats organization in the
state of Virginia.
The Arlington Young Democrats were
founded in 1936. Over the years, AYD
has served as both a source of
political activism for young people
and a springboard to political
involvement, including elected public
office, later in life. Many of today’s
Democratic leaders in Arlington
County were once members and
officers in AYD. In addition, AYD has
served as the breeding ground for
elected leaders in other jurisdictions,
from neighboring Fairfax to as far
away as Pasadena, California. Of
course, many former AYD members
have chosen not to seek elected office,
but have become community leaders
in many other ways, working for a
variety of community-based
organizations on both a professional
and volunteer basis.
