Nearly 50 members of the Queens County Young Democrats (QCYD), a group of 16 to 36-year-old political activists, came out to ask questions of the current vice chair of the Democratic Caucus in Washington.
“Our future is bright because of organizations like QCYD,” Crowley said. “I applaud their commitment to making positive change in our communities and I am proud to support their ongoing effort to inspire civic participation and our newest generation of difference makers through the power of democracy.”
QYDC president Hersh Parekh stressed the importance of his group taking part in opportunities like meeting with political leaders such as Crowley to further the movement and grow involvement among the young.
“We were honored to host Congressman Crowley and give our members the opportunity to meet and speak with him,” Parekh said. “This fosters growth and helps members learn first-hand the importance of public service.”
