Ahead of the 2020 elections, Blue Future + the Youth Progressive Action Catalyst has strategically invested over $30,000 to student organizers working to elect Democrats to the US House and US Senate!
Blue Future is committed to providing young people with the resources they need to make a difference in our political system. We believe the talented student organizers who are working on key Congressional and Senate races will have a big impact on the 2020 elections.
Blue Future is a youth-led political action committee (PAC), focused on organizing young people around progressive electoral campaigns.
“Blue Future is building the field infrastructure to help progressive Democrats win key races across the country while simultaneously developing a diverse leadership pipeline to strengthen the future of the Democratic Party and the progressive movement. We’re proud to make investments NOW, specifically in local youth organizers who are committed to reshaping the political landscape of their community. Our team at Blue Future could not be more excited to start working with student leaders in these key states to ensure young people are doing our part to help elect Democrats in this most important election year,” said Nick Guthman, Blue Future’s Executive Director.
Blue Future received 20 funding applications from student organizers across the sixteen states. Students submitted campus engagement plans with budgets of up to $3,000. After interviewing the pool of applicants, the Blue Future team is excited to be supporting such talented, driven organizers working on campaigns across 15 key states.
This investment will help elect progressives to Congress and help elect a new Democratic President in November 2020. Over the next several months, Blue Future will continue to provide these students with funding, training, and leadership development.
