Upper Saddle River, NJ (December 11, 2019)—The Andrew Goodman Foundation (AGF) is pleased to announce it has accepted three emerging civic leaders to the second cohort of Andrew Goodman Puffin Democracy Fellows. The 2020-2021 Fellows will focus on promoting AGF’s mission to make young voices and votes a powerful force in democracy by increasing access for young voters. The Andrew Goodman Puffin Democracy Fellows program is a multiyear fellowship generously funded by the Puffin Foundation and available to alumni of The Andrew Goodman Foundation’s programs.

“Young people have often led important social movements both in the United States and abroad. Today, we need them to lead us yet again, and that’s why we’re thrilled to launch the new cohort of Andrew Goodman Puffin Democracy Fellows,” says The Andrew Goodman Foundation’s Program Director Karena Cronin. “Through their projects, our Fellows will work to empower their peers and increase voting access to help advance political and social equity in the United States.”
