The Campaign Committee (CC) is a team of experienced campaign workers and community organizers. Their goal is to connect dedicated volunteers to crucial political campaign opportunities for local, statewide, and Federal races. CC also works on the AKYD candidate endorsement process, and leading trainings on Alaska politics.
The Outreach Committee focuses on events related to AKYD recruitment and community engagement. Events include: family-friendly Happy Hours, meet and greets with politicians, tabling at Pridefest and Juneteenth. Outreach works closely with various nonprofit organizations and groups across the political spectrum. They also volunteer in the community (cleaning facilities, serving at Bean’s Cafe).
The Finance Committee focuses on the financial management of AKYD, and coordinates fundraisers. Funds raised are used to support Young Democrats traveling to Democratic meetings, host educational trainings and conventions, and support statewide political canvassing.
