The Merrimack Valley Young Democrats was founded in January of 2011. MVYD serves Young Democrats living across the Merrimack River Valley from cities like Lowell and Lawrence to the oceanside community of Newburyport. Its purpose is to support Democratic Party principles while representing the young voters within the Party.
While all are invited to participate in our events, our voting membership consists of Democrats under the age of 36. To become a voting member, you must attend at least two Merrimack Valley Young Democrats events in a 12 months period.
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 the Merrimack Valley 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 ideas you may have.
