Sammi Brown, Vice President of the Eastern Panhandle Young Democrats, said, “Establishing this tradition marks the revival of our local chapter of young progressives. Our generation has the most to gain by getting involved in the political process, but also the most to lose by sitting at home.”
“It is vitally important to have civic engagement from citizens of every age and demographic,” Regan said. “It is refreshing to see this diverse group coming together to discuss the issues that affect them and advocate for progress.”
The Eastern Panhandle Young Democrats is a non-profit membership organization open to registered Democrats, ages 18 to 35, from Morgan, Berkeley, and Jefferson County, West Virginia.
