The 2022 Winter Meeting of the Young Democrats of America will take place December 9th through December 11th in Buffalo, New York.

New York is a big state, but most people don’t often look outside of the five boroughs that make up New York City. The New York State Young Democrats are thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome Young Democrats from across the country to show you the cornerstone of Western New York.

From December 9 - 11, the Young Democrats of America will get the full experience of the vibrant and lively city that is Buffalo, New York. The home of Governor Kathy Hochul, the Starbucks Workers United union, and the future Superbowl Champions, the Buffalo Bills.

Our programming will focus on how the Labor Movement built this nation and keeps it running. Since World War II, unions have moved beyond their traditional roles of collective bargaining and representation to a more community-oriented mission of improving the quality of local jobs and the communities they live in. As the home to more than 200 labor unions including the newly formed Starbuck Workers United, Buffalo is a labor town! Since 2003, Buffalo’s union density and representation has ranked in the top 15 in the United States.

Buffalo and the New York State Young Democrats welcome you with open arms for the Young Democrats of America’s Winter Meeting. It's time for us to honor, celebrate, collaborate and learn from those in the movement before us, those in the movement with us while training those who we will pass the baton to next.
