10/25 The Path to a Blue Future w/ Nick Guthman

October 25, 2018

Nick Guthman (@NickGuthman),  the co-founder and executive director of Our Blue Future joins Michael to discuss how young progressive Americans are working to elect Democrats in 2018 and beyond. Guthman explains how and why very few youth organizations do coordinated electoral work. Guthman and his friends were very involved in the American University College Democrats and after graduating used their network and resources to raise money and awareness for 2018 Democratic candidates across the country with the help of local College Democrats in those states. Using a combination of digital media and on-the-ground organizing, Our Blue Future has been able to gather support for candidates that will bring new progressive representatives to Congress.
