Blue Future is a national organizing program run out of the Youth Progressive Action Catalyst, a youth-led political action committee (PAC), focused on organizing young people around progressive electoral campaigns.
We’re building the field infrastructure to help progressive Democrats win key races in the House, Senate, and White House in 2020 while simultaneously developing a diverse leadership pipeline to strengthen the future of the Democratic party and the progressive movement.
To continuously engage, mobilize, and connect young people to progressive electoral campaigns, equipping them with the resources, tools, skills, and network to be effective volunteers, organizers, and public servants.
What Makes Us Different
We offer donors and organizations a complimentary vehicle to expand the value of their endorsement and direct contribution to the coordinated campaign by turbo-charging the campaigns’ volunteer capacity. We provide an additional opportunity for donors and organizations to impact the elections by investing in grassroots mobilization and student leadership.
Lack of funding for youth engagement disproportionately burdens working-class students and students of color, creating a major barrier for youth leaders who want to make a difference in the world by working for progressive candidates. We make direct financial investments in student leaders in key congressional districts who create and mobilize a base of volunteers to expand a campaign’s field efforts through canvassing, phone banking, and other needs as identified by the campaign.
Blue Future is contributing to progressive electoral victories today. And most importantly, we’re building a future where the progressive movement benefits from the brilliance of diverse young leaders who will bend the moral arc of the universe toward justice for years to come.
Most youth engagement groups do non-partisan voter registration and mobilization. Very few youth organizations do coordinated electoral work. As a result, national progressive groups that run PACs have trouble aligning their program and coordinating with youth-led groups, since they don’t exist.
Blue Future, and its parent organization, the Youth Progressive Action Catalyst, are the only youth-led political organizations connecting young people directly to progressive candidates & campaigns.
