Thank you to our enlightening speakers for teaching 350 young people about the historic and continuing struggle for voting rights and strong democracy in America. We mourn the loss of our first speaker of the summer, the great Bob Moses, and strive to carry on in his spirit.

There was no better way to close out six energizing weeks of organizing with Dem Summer than to hear from @katieporteroc and see her famous whiteboard! Thanks Rep. Porter for a rousing speech, and to @TeamPelosi and all our Members for those great messages to graduating Fellows!
white board + mini van + democracy summer graduation = a fabulous Katie porter speech

Organizer of SNCC, Freedom Summer, the Miss. Freedom Democratic Party, and the Algebra Project, Bob Moses created a current of thought and feeling that transformed America. He was a faithful friend to Democracy Summer, and we’ll always love and miss him.

After the Algebra Project did a forum on the Hill in 2019 about the fundamental right to education, I invited Bob Moses and Danny Glover to join us in Silver Spring for an event AOC was headlining for Democracy Summer. Will never forget that night.

Speaker Pelosi, Rep. Mike Levin and Democracy Summer Fellows rock the vote as we defend democracy against GOP vote suppression.
As Congressman @MikeLevin said, Democrats are delivering #ForThePeople. It was such an honor to meet with his VIPs — the Volunteers In Politics — who make it all happen. -NP

Yesterday, Horsford Fellows met with @CommishMcCurdy to hear his inspiring story! Democracy Summer is a great way to meet with electeds while getting involved in the process. I'm thrilled to help facilitate #DemocracySummer with @RepRaskin. It's a truly unique opportunity.

It was wonderful to spend some time with our 2021 Democracy Summer Fellows yesterday morning. Our fellows have been learning all about campaigns, voting rights, and strengthening democracy, while also working with people across NJ’s 11th district.

It was so wonderful having @EvanMGlass, @jamie_raskin, and @JohnSarbanes join the Democracy Summer Fellows today for a riveting discussion about H.R 1 and campaign finance reform. Thank you to everyone who tuned in!
The “For the People Act” will expand access to the ballot box and reduce the influence of big money in politics. Proud to join @jamie_raskin @JohnSarbanes and young leaders from across the country for a discussion about enacting progressive electoral reforms at the local level.

Mitch McConnell brags about all the money coming to Kentucky in federal aid but admits not a single GOP Senator voted for it. How proud they must be! Vote for Democrats, party of the people.

Spending time with the Democracy Summer fellows was the highlight of my summer so far. At root, I feel like organizing is what makes change, and here are all these young people ready to work for justice and figure out how to build the progressive movement from the precinct up.

Democracy Summer chapters across America salute Michigan Democracy Summer Fellows and @Andy_Levin for standing strong for voting rights! Young people built America’s voting rights movement in the 20th century and will keep them going in the 21st. #DemocracySummer

What a great time we had celebrating with the Town of Somerset and Village of Friendship Heights on this beautiful Independence Day. Wishing a happy safe 4th of July to all my friends in Maryland’s 8th and beyond! Nobody can keep American democracy down.
