What We Do
When SNAP Endorses a candidate, we don’t simply cut them a $5,000 check that disappears as fast as a 30-second television ad. Instead, we provide each endorsed candidate with at least two full-time, zero-cost field organizers (SNAP Fellows) for June through August of the election year. A typical team of two SNAP organizers represents and in-kind donation of $5,000 to the endorsed campaign. SNAP provides all Fellows with need-based stipends and thorough training before they are placed on campaigns (we require campaigns to provide the Fellows with supporter housing).
Our endorsements are non-partisan and based on candidates’ positions on a number of issues: economics and tax policy, energy and the environment, choice and reproductive justice, LGBTQ rights, labor issues, and foreign policy. We only endorse in competitive races.
