LEAD Initiative Democracy Project

  • DEMOCRACY IS NOT A SPECTATOR SPORT!

    In this fight for our democracy, the LEAD Initiative Democracy Project has three goals:

    1. to fund students to work for non-partisan, get-out-the-vote, pro-democracy, and voting rights organizations.

    2. to enable community members to find volunteer opportunities to ensure greater voter engagement across the country.

    3.  to encourage everyone in the NYU community to vote.

GET INVOLVED IN DEMOCRACY WORK: 

Voting rights are meaningless without voter access, but renewed attacks on both are advancing at the state level. Moreover, major local elections will take place this year in New Jersey, Virginia, and New York City. This is an exciting time to be involved in election campaigns, election policy, non-partisan efforts to defend and deepen our democracy.
