Blue Future is a youth-led civic engagement startup focused on organizing young people around progressive electoral campaigns. We’re on a mission to continuously engage, mobilize, and connect young people to progressive electoral campaigns, equipping them with the resources, tools, skills, and network to be effective volunteers, organizers, and public servants.
We believe young people have a responsibility to help elect candidates who will stand up for the values of the next generation, including bold action on climate change, racial justice, gun violence prevention, criminal justice reform, public + higher education, voting rights, equality and LGBTQ rights, women’s health, and health care for all.
Young people helped make history in 2018 by electing the most progressive, diverse Congress in recent history. Blue Future helped elect 17 new Democrats to Congress and we know that investing in youth organizing is part of the winning strategy for the Democratic Party. In 2020, young people can and will play a key role in electing a Democratic president to usher in the most progressive era in modern American history. Change is coming, are you ready?
