I am proud to announce that my campaign will be participating in the 2021 Democracy Summer Fellowship Program.
Developed by Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin, this program is dedicated to training the next generation of political activists, organizers, and leaders.
I am looking for 4 dedicated high school or college students to join me as Frontera Fellows for our program from Monday, June 21 to Friday, July 31. Selected fellows will participate in an exciting online seminar and curriculum designed by Rep. Raskin, while simultaneously training as organizers and volunteer activists with my reelection campaign here in El Paso.
Frontera Fellows will learn from great activists, Democratic policy experts, and top political organizers across the country. Past speakers have included Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Civil Rights leader Bob Moses, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. John Lewis, and many others. Locally, fellows will participate in key organizing events and learn to phone-bank, text-bank, use social media to organize, register voters, and build change in our country!
This program will help build a foundation for future political activists in El Paso.
The deadline to apply is May 7th.
Because we believe summer programs shouldn’t be cost prohibitive to students who need summer income, each fellow will be paid $500 to participate in our 6-week program.
If you’re interested in helping us grow future activists through the Democracy Summer Fellowship, I encourage you to make a donation to help us fund this program. For each $500 raised, we can take on one additional fellow, with no limits. I’ll make sure to send you positive updates on the important work our fellows are doing in the community.
