    2016 might have been a tough year for Democrats nationwide, but California continues to lead the way with our progressive majority and unprecedented voter engagement. SFVYD is committed to upholding these values while educating and invigorating young activists.

    We are proud to recognize Democratic agents of change who independently and collectively have played an instrumental role in progressive politics at the local, state, and federal levels. The RFK Awards serves as both an opportunity to honor the contributions of these transformative leaders and as SFVYD's only fundraising event of the year.
