Students for a New American Politics PAC  (SNAP PAC)

Help launch a new generation of progressive leaders

SNAP PAC sparks thousands of careers in progressive politics by enabling low-income students to work as paid field organizers on congressional campaigns

To elect Democrats, we need skilled organizers, strategists, and candidates who come from the diverse communities where we’re trying to win. Instead, the progressive political world is overwhelmingly wealthy and white—and there’s a reason why.

In order to get started in politics, you need to work a series of unpaid internships –– a path that’s inaccessible to low-income students. So every year, thousands of potential leaders have to pursue different careers, and progressives miss out on the diverse talent we need to win across the country.

SNAP PAC offers the fix: We identify talented low-income students committed to progressive change who can’t afford to spend a summer working an unpaid internship. We offer them a $2,500 stipend, as well as training, mentorship, and guaranteed housing and place fellows in organizing positions on handpicked Democratic campaigns. Our fellows have translated their SNAP experience into careers at Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood, the DCCC, the SEIU, Indivisible, and more. Without SNAP, most would never have worked in politics.
