Our Story

Students for a New American Politics (SNAP) is the nation’s largest student-run political action committee. Founded in 2005, SNAP has raised over $200,000 to support progressive candidates for Congress around the country, while training the next generation of progressive organizers through the SNAP Fellowship program.

When a group of college students came together following the 2004 campaign, they envisioned creating an organization that was for students, by students. Today, SNAP remains staffed entirely by full-time college students and just as committed to putting more students on the path to careers in grassroots organizing through the SNAP Fellowship program. Since its founding, SNAP has sponsored more than 75 college students as full-time organizing fellows.

SNAP’s commitment to the future of the progressive movement, innovative approach to political action committee expenditures, and unique story has earned the attention of media around the country including The NationThe Huffington Post, Daily Kos, USA Today: College and other print and online publications.

We aim to be the most impactful student-run Political Action Committee in the nation.
