About us

As the official youth caucus of the Indiana Democratic Party, the Indiana Young Democrats (IYD) mobilize young people between the ages of 14 and 35 to participate in the electoral process, influence elections, promote the ideals of the Democratic Party and develop the skills of the youth generation to serve as leaders on local, state, and national levels. IYD is also a recognized charter of the Young Democrats of America and a recognized constituency caucus on the Indiana Democratic Party State Central Committee. 

I’ve dedicated my life to public service, and I feel it’s still a noble profession. However, I also understand it’s a contact sport.
Congressman Pete Visclosky
I think we have a number of young people – like yourself – who want to make a difference.
Former Senator Birch Bayh
Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.
My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.
We have always held to the hope, the belief, the conviction that there is a better life, a better world, beyond the horizon.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt
