Our Impact in the 2019 Elections

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.

The Details

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.

Blue Future is a project of the Youth  Progressive Action Catalyst (YPAC), a  registered Hybrid Federal PAC) and the  Progressive Leadership Initiative,  our 501c4 non-profit.
