Do you want to build your organizing skills and mobilize the youth vote—and help make real, lasting change? As a College Fellow, you’ll receive expert organizing training to help students (on your campus and beyond) overcome barriers to voting. And you’ll mobilize them to empower others. You’ll help fill an important gap in progressive voter mobilization by forging partnerships among student groups across campuses, where increasing voter turnout on Election Day will have the most impact. For more information on the Fellowship program, check out our FAQs.
Swing Left is a national grassroots organization that took back the House in 2018 by building a national campaign for Democratic candidates in 84 Swing Districts in three big ways: recruiting and training an army of volunteers, raising funds from grassroots donors, and building cultural momentum for the midterms. For 2020, we’ll be bringing our “campaigns-in-waiting” model to swing Senate seats, defend the House, win the state-level races needed to ensure fair maps for 2021 redistricting—and, of course, the Presidency.
In 2018 we took back the House. Join us, and help take back all the Houses in 2020.
We believe that the GOP's bad behavior disproportionately hurts the most marginalized people in society — including people of color, people from working-class backgrounds, women and LGBTQ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities, members of other marginalized communities. We also encourage applications from students in 2 or 4-year programs and part and full-time students.
