Students for a New American Politics PAC
Students for a New American Politics (SNAP) is the nation’s largest entirely student-run political action committee. Founded in 2005, SNAP has raised over $200,000 to support progressive candidates for Congress around the country, while training the next generation of progressive organizers through the SNAP Fellowship program.
When a group of college students came together following the 2004 campaign, they envisioned creating an organization that was for students, by students. Today, SNAP remains just as committed to that endeavor, staffed entirely by full-time college students, and putting more than 50 college students on the path to careers in grassroots organizing through the SNAP Fellowship program. SNAP’s commitment to the future of the progressive movement, innovative approach to political action committee expenditures, and unique story has earned the attention of media around the country includingThe Nation,The Huffington Post, Daily Kos, USA Today: College and other print and online publications.
