North Coast Young Democrats introduces itself to the Community with a party on Saturday, March 24.

Eureka, CA  The North Coast Young Democrats (NCYD), a new local political organization with membership open to those under 36, is hosting a Chartering Party and Fundraiser on Saturday from 6–9 p.m. at the Sewell Gallery (428 F St., Eureka).  All local Democrats are invited to the party during the Jazz Festival Weekend with food, drinks, music and a special keynote address from Arcata Vice-Mayor Shane Brinton.  Brinton began his career in public service on the Northern Humboldt Unified School District board at the age of 18 and was elected to Arcata City Council in 2008. Brinton will address the vision and creativity that young people provide the political process.

NCYD, a chapter of the California Young Democrats, is establishing itself to encourage young Democrats to become involved in politics in Humboldt County.  NCYD plans to engage young people by registering peers to vote, endorsing Democratic candidates for office and advocating a platform on issues that are important to young people.

“The North Coast Young Democrats are committed to bringing young people to the polls for the 2012 election” said Sofia Pereira, Chair of the North Coast Young Democrats.  “In 2008 young people came out in historic numbers to elect President Obama. We’re prepared to drag every young voter kicking and screaming to the polls, if that’s what it takes to have our values represented” Pereira continued.

The Charter Members of the North Coast Young Democrats will also be fundraising so that they can begin carrying out their goals over the next year.  A Spend a Day with a Young Democrat silent auction and a $5-$10 (sliding scale) cover will raise funds that will allow the club the opportunity to begin educating peers on issues, advocating their perspective locally and registering new voters.
