2022 was a monumental year for the Brooklyn Young Democrats. BYD worked tirelessly to fight back against both an onslaught of Republican misinformation and a county party that refused to do anything about it.
In June, with our partners in the Brooklyn Can't Wait ([link removed]) coalition, we elected a slate of reform-minded District Leaders ([link removed]) ready to build a better, more effective Democratic Party, even as the county party used corruption and fraud ([link removed]) to fight us every step of the way.
Then, this fall, we hit the streets week ([link removed]) after week ([link removed]) to knock doors and get the vote out for Democratic candidates in Southern Brooklyn, holding the line against a Republican red wave of conspiracies theories and fear-mongering. While we did the leg work, the county party twiddled their thumbs ([link removed]) .
Along the way, we raised our voices ([link removed]) in support of abortion access; made our way to Pennsylvania ([link removed]) to ensure Democrats held control of the US Senate; and knocked doors for proudly progressive candidates across the borough. ([link removed])
2023 will bring even more crucial work in the fight for a better Brooklyn. BYD plans to be on the front lines, supporting progressive candidates, battling Republicans, and raising our collective voice on the issues impacting young people.
But we can't do it without your support.
Join us January 25th for our "We Are Young" Fundraiser and Gala ([link removed]) to support BYD's efforts for the upcoming year. Join us for food, drinks and a chance to celebrate young Brooklynites. We'll also announce our special honorees in the coming days!
