We advocate for policies that support students and young professionals at all levels of government and provide resources for local Democratic activists and groups across the state.

CYDI also connects young, engaged activists with Democratic candidates to win in all of Iowa’s 99 counties.

We, the College and Young Democrats of Iowa (CYDI), do hereby dedicate ourselves to organizing young people in the state of Iowa in order to encourage, develop and support their participation in the political process and the Democratic Party. As it is our conviction that America was, is, and always will be a revolutionary country in spirit, we will strive for progressive change at every level of government.
