Students, sign up today and we will connect you with a Democratic campaign in your area and provide the structure and support to ensure your efforts make a difference. The doors you knock on could swing the next election.
In 2017, over 100 student interns, ranging in age from 12 to 22 helped Josh Lafazan become the youngest Legislator ever elected in Nassau County, NY. These interns knocked on over 10,000 doors, wrote letters, made phone calls and when election day came, Josh Lafazan didn’t just win. He registered a twelve point victory over an incumbent flipping a red district blue.
His student interns were nearly his entire staff. The thousands and thousands of voters they reached were the big story of his electoral success.
One of these interns created Move The Future to enable students across the country to share this experience and start today to create the future they want to live in tomorrow.
