Founded nearly 50 years ago by Congressmen Henry Waxman and Howard Berman and former City Controller Rick Tuttle and others, the Los Angeles County Young Democrats is the largest organization in California focused on giving young people a voice and a vehicle for activism in local, state, and federal political issues. 

With more than 1,400 members and supporters and dozens of local, state, and federal candidates either members or helped into office by the Club, LACYD remains at the forefront of keeping Young Democrats engaged, informed, and heard on issues of importance to young people.
