Civic Engagement

Andrew Goodman Foundation

Logo for Andrew Goodman Foundation

 

Vote Everywhere, a program of The Andrew Goodman Foundation, is a unique Civic Engagement Initiative rooted in a legacy of civil rights and social justice. Vote Everywhere carries on the work of Andrew Goodman, a sophomore at Queens College, who was murdered along with James Chaney and Michael Schwerner during Freedom Summer 1964 while attempting to register African-Americans to vote. Vote Everywhere empowers a national community of campus leaders to mobilize others to act on issues of importance using their votes, voices and networks.

In 2020, Vote Everywhere student ambassadors are focused on the 2020 Census, voter registration, and elections.

Campus Election Engagement Project

 Campus Election Engagement Project

 

Campus Election Engagement Project (CEEP) is a national nonpartisan project that helps administrators, faculty, staff and student leaders at America’s colleges and universities engage students in federal, state and local elections, working to promote a more equitable and inclusive democracy, and to overcome the ever-changing barriers to voting.  With support and guidance from our state directors, our schools help their students to register, volunteer in campaigns, educate themselves on candidates and issues, navigate confusing voting laws, and turn out at the polls.

Our Fall 2020 CEEP Fellows will work alongside our Andrew Goodman Fellows to plan election and voter engagement.
