MOVE organizers, interns, and volunteers do all kinds of things to create a more hands-on democracy. Especially these things:
We’re bringing sweet, sweet democracy to the masses. Our army of volunteers (and the occasional vote-bot) are out registering voters, turning out voters to the polls, and helping young people gain a collective political voice across the state. Whether it’s a hosting a Saturday Night Live themed candidate forum, speaking to students in their classroom about the importance of voting, or registering voters at your favorite local bar, we’re out there making sure everyone has the opportunity to make their voice heard.
MOVE runs a year-round and hands-on leadership development program. It’s like a boot camp for grassroots politics minus the boot and the camp part. Each of the three sessions throughout the year (spring, summer, and fall) teach young people how to be a citizen lobbyist, how to run a field campaign, and how to engage their peers in the democratic process.
Lobbying isn’t slimy when it’s in the public interest. We draft, lobby, and pass real legislation that impacts the issues of our generation: LGBTQ equality, environmental justice, accessible elections, labor and union rights, and a fair, sustainable economy.
