Democracy Summer Maryland: Mobilizing the Future!
The Democracy Summer Maryland project seeks to bring about sweeping political change and advance social and economic justice in America by educating, training and deploying the next generation of organizers to win elections at every level.
Democracy Summer 2020 will be taking place online, and some sessions will be livestreamed publicly. The deadline to apply for Fellow and Senior Fellow positions has passed.
We're delighted to be bringing you this unprecedented, exciting, and absolutely crucial Democracy Summer at such a major crossroads for our nation and world. Our national seminar livestream recordings can be viewed at your convenience on the Raskin Campaign YouTube channel in this playlist.

Testimonials from Democracy Summer Maryland 2019 alumni:
"You learn from these amazing people everyday at Democracy Summer with their questions and answers. I can say there's never been a day at Democracy Summer whenn I didn't learn something new. Being surrounded with this uplifting group of people inspired me to create a politically active club at my school...Democracy Summer isn't just something you do and leave, it inspires you to continue what you learned and use it in the world to change it into a better place. My time at Democracy Summer was truly my most life-changing experience yet. I now hope and aspire to stay continuously politically active and aware." ––Adesola Adelegan, Democracy Summer 2019 Fellow
"One of the biggest things I've gained from this experience and plan to use going forward is to remember that while talking about politics is important, action is needed to fix the problems that concern me. More often than not, it is not hard to get involved when you have the right information and even the simplest contributions make a big difference." ––Annabelle Tamaro, Democracy Summer 2019 Fellow
"Through the program, I learned not only how small grassroots campaigns are run, but also what to do after the polls close. I learned that small groups of determined people, of any age, can make a large impact. The program gave me a roadmap for making change." ––Drew Olsen, Democracy Summer 2019 Fellow
Note: We have weekend activities and events on many weekend days. Attending several of these events is essential for the full Democracy Summer experience.
