Students for a New American Politics, a progressive student-run PAC, fundraiser
Students for a New American Politics, a progressive student-run PAC, will be hosting its first event of the academic year on Sunday, September 22. The fundraiser will kick off the 2013-4 election cycle, in which SNAP PAC will mark its 10th year, and will be held from 2-4 pm at Kathleen Corbet’s house: 147 Briscoe Rd., New Canaan, CT. Previous SNAP endorsees Senator Chris Murphy and Congressman Jim Himes will both be in attendance.
SNAP PAC (Students for a New American Politics) is the nation’s largest student-run Political Action Committee, supporting progressive candidates across the nation by sponsoring fellowships for students and young people to work on campaigns.
In 2012, SNAP PAC’s 33 Organizing Fellows worked on 17 campaigns for state ballot initiatives and U.S. House and Senate, including the campaigns of Senators Elizabeth Warren and Chris Murphy and Representatives Ami Bera and Ann McLane Kuster. SNAP PAC’s fundraising efforts make possible the positive experiences of its promising fellows.
SNAP PAC is committed to electing today’s progressive candidates and training tomorrow’s diverse political leaders.
