Who are the
OC Young Republicans?

The Orange County Young Republicans (OCYR) is an organization consisting of young professionals and political activists who are committed to a common sense approach to politics. We believe in the Republicans ideals of lower taxation, limited government, personal freedom and personal responsibility. OCYR promotes and supports the Republican Party by endorsing candidates, increasing Republican voter registration, participating in Get-Out-The-Vote efforts and encouraging our party’s youth to take a strong leadership role.

OCYR is a great place to meet other like minded conservatives and to directly affect elections in your community. We are always looking for new members and would love to see you at our next event!
