WASHINGTON, D.C. - Democratic GAIN, a national membership association for progressive political professionals and organizations based in Washington, D.C., today announced that it will be partnering with Young Democrats of America, the largest youth-led partisan organization in the United States. Democratic GAIN and the Young Democrats of America will collaborate on trainings, community engagement and the hosting of progressive roundtables.

“To better serve the members of GAIN and YDA, we find that a partnership between our organizations will help to achieve a key goal of both of our organizations: Helping to place dynamic and talented progressive and Democratic leaders in opportunities within the progressive and Democratic organizing space,” said Kouri Marshall, Executive Director of Democratic GAIN.


“The trainings, community engagement events and progressive roundtables we will conduct and host together will help to expand the range of these opportunities in our respective movements as we gear up for what will be one of the most crucial elections of our lifetime,” Marshall added.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Democratic GAIN. We have worked together in the past and we look forward to strengthening our relationship moving forward, especially during this important election season,” said Louis Elrod, President of the Young Democrats of America.

“These are great opportunities for our membership and young people nationwide who will benefit from this partnership. Let's get to work!” added Elrod.
