Bring Our Student Vote Training to Your Campus

It may not seem like it, but the 2014 elections are right around the corner. It’s time to start planning your fall election projects now.

Mobilizing students to vote is one of the best ways that you can strengthen the student voice. If college students want their voices heard by elected officials, they need to turn out at the polls.

That’s why we’ve partnered with the Student PIRGs’ New Voters Project to provide the nation’s premier nonpartisan training on how to run effective campus voter registration and get-out-the-vote drives. The New Voters Project is the nation’s leading nonpartisan young voter mobilization program. Since 1983, they have helped to register more than 1.2 million young voters and make more than a million personalized get-out-the-vote contacts.Read More

For Your Reading List

Book CoverFor any student government leaders who have ever been frustrated by the challenge of mobilizing your fellow students (and we’re betting that’s all of you), we have a recommendation for your reading list: the new edition of “The Impossible Will Take a Little While: Perseverance and Hope in Troubled Times” by Paul Loeb.

The book brings together the voices of eloquent writers to talk about how they replenish the wells of commitment, exploring what keeps them going in the face of constant challenges. Some essays address our current political time, from memoirs of the Arab Spring to dispatches from the environmental movement. Others examine how people persisted in past struggles that could easily have been deemed unwinnable: what it was like to confront South African apartheid, Eastern European dictatorships, Mississippi’s entrenched segregation, or the bigotry that kept gays silent and closeted.Read More
