In a time of global pandemic, the 2020 presidential election is in peril. Students can and must help protect our democracy this year. Freedom Summer 2020 gives students from universities across the nation a chance to be part of a virtual movement for voter engagement ahead of the 2020 election. Join with others in helping build the power and voice of low-wage worker voters who have been the most impacted by COVID-19 this summer.
Freedom Summer 2020 will be held in a completely online format from July 6—August 14. Participants will take one 3-unit class in social movements and learn how to organize, develop leadership, and help people get out to vote, and then participate in a second 3-unit field course in which they put those learnings into practice by organizing low-wage workers to vote over the phone and using a voter app.
