The Greater Boston Chapter of the Young Democrats of Massachusetts  (GBYD) was chartered in April 2009 and serves Young Democrats in the Greater Boston area who want to help shape their Party and community! While all are invited to participate in our events, our membership consists of Democrats under the age 36 – and to vote or run in our elections, be sure to attend at least two events soon! You can learn more about how we work in the Greater Boston Young Democrats charter.

Our programming includes social, networking, advocacy, campaign, educational, and other events to help members connect with each other, learn about the issues that affect them, and change the shape of politics around Greater Boston and the Commonwealth. We’re here to put on the events, programming, and political activity that you are interested in, so be sure get involved to help shape the organization and share any any ideas you may have.
