GEPAC: Generation Election PAC
I am doing some work with a new, not even officially formed, PAC called "Generation Election." They have some great ideas to get young people involved in progressive politics and will do it by supporting young, exciting candidates for offices from school board to the U.S Senate. They are taking donations already, here is their Mission Statement:
The mission of Generation Election is simple: to get more young Americans involved in the political process. GEPAC will also devote resources towards supporting young candidates for political office in the United States. Students and young people interested in the political process will be able to sign up for GEPAC and then be paired with a GEPAC sponsored candidate in their area. GEPAC sponsored candidates, ideally, will be found from candidates for the United States Senate all the way down to school board. To take back this country, we have to start at the grassroots. We have to "build our bench": get young, capable candidates in political office where they can gain valuable experience, while at the same time building a vast grassroots organization of young people, who will gain experiences that will help them change the world.
The Generation Election (GEPAC) site will be up in the next few weeks. For now, you can e-mail email@example.com for more info on GEPAC. Please, consider making a small donation today. The folks at GEPAC already have a young (in this case, under 28) candidate picked out to run for a slightly GOP state assembly seat in the northeast ... more details soon.
