Challenging the status quo.
IYD is proud to endorse extraordinary Democratic candidates for state and local offices in Indiana. Our mission is to elect candidates who represent our shared Democratic values and advocate for what’s best for all Hoosiers.
Support is offered to candidates based in part on the responses to their application questionnaire, a potential interview with the Endorsement Committee, and the Committee and Board’s collective approval. IYD does not support candidates in a contested primary election.
Applications for endorsement open late spring and will be announced at a later date.

One of the most integral parts of our mission will always be to elect candidates who represent our shared Democratic values and advocate for what’s best for all Hoosiers. Resources available for allocation vary depending on a variety of factors.

Designation as an IYD endorsed candidate shall involve the eligibilty to receive financial support via a campaign contribution/fundraising sponsorship in addition to the benefits of being recognized as a supported candidate mentioned above. Financial support levels will vary depending on a given year’s budget.

Our team will organize a Day of Action for your campaign. Whether it’s a virtual phonebank or a community canvass, we’re ready to work for you.
SOCIAL MEDIA PROMO
