We’ll provide a list of current internship and field work opportunities, and info about how to get involved with your state senator or state rep. They’re all home knocking doors in their districts until the end of August, and are happy to train you in the work.We’re excited to be working with Young Democrats of Michigan (YDM) (a chapter of Young Democrats of America) to launch YDW to engage young Dems 16 – 36.The Downtown branch of the AADL is at 343 S. 5th in A2. Parking on the street is free at 6:00 pm, and public transit is convenient, since the AADL is across Fifth Avenue from the Blake Transit Center on AAATA Bus Routes 3, 4, 5, 6, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32 & 33.
