The Andrew Goodman Foundation

The Andrew Goodman Foundation works to make young voices and votes a powerful force in democracy. The foundation partnered with Cornell to cultivate civic leaders, remove voting barriers, and mobilize student voters to take action on issues that will affect students' futures.

Vote Everywhere is a national, non-partisan, civic engagement movement of student leaders and university partners. The program provides extensive training, resources, as well as a peer network to support its Ambassadors while they work to register voters, bring down voting barriers, and tackle important social justice issues on their college campuses.
