The Big Picture
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 make direct investments in student leaders in key elections who create and mobilize a base of student volunteers to expand a campaign’s field efforts through canvassing, phone banking, and other needs as identified by the campaign.
In 2019, Blue Future invested just under $10,000 into the power and ambition of young people.
They managed to do what many believed was impossible:
- Flipped the Virginia legislature blue
- Elected a Democratic Governor in Kentucky
- Re-elected a Democratic Governor in Louisiana
- Stopped a Republican supermajority in Louisiana
- Elected Democrats in Mississippi & built power for the 2020 Senate election
2019 showed that when we trust young people and provide them with the necessary resources, they can make groundbreaking changes.
