Young Democrats of Washington Launch New Website
Redesign Creates a Place for Young Party Activists in Blogosphere
The Young Democrats of Washington are proud to announce a major redesign of their website YDWA.org (http://www.ydwa.org/).
This new website is powered by the Movable Type publishing engine and features a fast, modern design, as well as easily accessible content and the latest web syndication features.
The new YDWA.org focuses on grassroots organizing, by helping to connect young Democratic activists across the state and by providing a realm where interested young voters can learn more about the party. The site will help build a greater sense of community among young Democratic political activists across the state. YDWA members will use this inclusive atmosphere to encourage more young voters to become active within Democratic Party.
Visitors to YDWA.org will be able to participate in an ongoing dialog about political issues on the new blog. The site will also publicize major political events across the state, as well as specific events organized by Young Democrats chapters in Washington.
Further additions to the site include an online Photo Gallery (http://www.ydwa.org/gallery/) filled with pictures of the Young Democrats political activities.
"This really is exciting. The Young Democrats of Washington just entered the blogosphere and I hope that this site becomes a premier political website for young progressive voters all over the state and beyond," said YDWA Technology Director Jacob Metcalf.

As much as I don't like the term "blogosphere," because it implies a seperation from the real world, this is an amazingly good thing for Young Dems.
