Young Democrats remain the corner stone for building the future. All of our ideas, policies and goals will fail unless we have full partnership and support from future generations.
On Saturday, I was honored to give the keynote address to the State YD Convention, here in Albuquerque. Nothing is more exciting than seeing Young Democrats at work, showing their excitement and passion for the Democratic Party. These young men and women are our future leaders, not only for New Mexico but for the nation.
The Democratic Party supports affordable options to help with student loans, like the law President Obama signed in 2010 that allows students to lower their rates to 10% of their income, which caps student loan repayments. The Affordable Care Act eliminated pre-existing conditions for minors and allows the option to stay on a parent or guardians health plan until the age of 26. More choices, more options, more freedom while making plans for the future.
DPNM endorses all efforts to defeat voter suppression--the Republican war on voting. Photo ID bills passed by Republican legislatures and signed by Republican Governors have one goalprevent youth, seniors and minorities from exercising their constitutional right to vote. Our party supports full inclusion for EVERYONE, excluding NO ONE.
We need, want and support YD energy, passion and involvement in all aspects of the state Democratic Party. DPNM is ready for Young Democrats to help us BUILD THE FUTURE.
