Students for a New American Politics PAC  (SNAP PAC)

Change American Politics!

There’s a big problem in progressive politics: we talk a lot about achieving economic justice and empowering diverse communities, but the way we staf our campaigns doesn’t reflect those values. In order to get started in politics, one needs to work a series of unpaid internships, a path that’s

inaccessible to low-income and working-class students. So thousands of young people every year miss the chance to launch their careers in politics, and progressive campaigns miss out on the next generation of leaders.

SNAP PAC offers the fix: We identify promising low-income students from public universities who are committed to progressive politics but can’t afford to spend a summer working for free. We offer them training, housing, and a $2,500 stipend and place them in pairs on Democratic congressional campaigns, where they serve as summer field organizers. By the end of the summer, most campaigns offer their fellows full-time employment through Election Day and our fellows leverage their SNAP PAC experiences to launch careers in politics and advocacy.

Without SNAP PAC, our fellows would have spent their summers working in retail, food service, and agriculture. Instead, they helped take back the House.
