Sandra Radoff, Co-Director of Students for Justice, talks with Deepak Puri, The Democracy Labs, about a grassroots effort that grew out of the challenges and opportunities created by COVID. The Students for Justice started with an idea about overcoming restrictions in the earliest days of the pandemic.  It is now an organization that provides paid internships to college students to introduce them to career opportunities in politics and advocacy.

Deepak and Sandra talk about:

  • The under-utilized power of students for political campaigns and to strengthen democracy
  • College students targeted by the organization to participate in paid internships
  • Role of adult mentors to help students find their place in the political process
  • Opportunities for organizing, campaigning, and direct field exposure for students
  • Recruiting students and virtual house parties
  • Growth of voter outreach on social media
  • Value of a virtual and hybrid approach to engage student interns
