Ohio Democratic Party Launches Summer Of Action Fellows Program

COLUMBUS — The Ohio Democratic Party is ramping up for its Summer of Action campaign with a fellowship program to register new voters, build volunteer capacity and push back on the president’s failed policies that are hurting the people of the Buckeye State.

“We’re proud to be training Ohio’s next generation of progressive activists as part of our 88-county strategy, which is designed to engage Democratic voters in every corner of the Buckeye State,” said Ohio Democratic Party Chairman David Pepper. “Over two Weekends of Action, hundreds of grassroots volunteers have already begun the hard work needed to re-engage tens of thousands of recently purged voters, and the Summer of Action campaign will expand on that work to register new voters, empower local activists to build community action teams, use the latest digital tools to reach voters where they are and persuade Ohioans who have been hurt by Donald Trump’s broken promises.”

The party will focus on hiring a diverse class of up to a dozen fellows who live in the communities they will organize, and they will pay the fellows $15 an hour.
