“Democracy Summer reinvigorated our local activists and clubs like nothing else. When you unleash the creativity and enthusiasm of young people, everyone gets excited. At this moment when our very democracy hangs in the balance and people worry about energizing the Democratic electorate in the midterms, Democracy Summer can add a huge splash of hope and confidence in every kind of district.”
-- Rep. Andy Levin, 2021 Democracy Summer Partner
"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 when 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."
