The Massachusetts High School Democrats (MAHSD) is an organization run by and for high school students to give teenage Democrats an opportunity to contribute to and be heard by our elected officials and the Democratic Party.
We are comprised of chapters in high schools from West Springfield to Cape Cod which run almost entirely autonomously, but our Executive Board helps organize and connect the network for regional and statewide projects.
MHSD members make a huge difference at the local, state, and national level every election cycle. We know, however, that democracy does not begin or end during elections. We rally as activists at the Women’s March, March for Science, Immigrants’ Day, and other events. We work to increase political participation with initiatives such as voter registration drives. We support legislation on Beacon Hill that advances the priorities of young people. We do everything we can to serve our communities.
In the aftermath of the Election of 2016, the Democratic Party is reaching a crossroads. For future success, the young people who represent the future of our democracy must take the lead. On our end, we’re fired up and ready to go.
