The Michigan Democratic Party is recruiting college juniors to work this summer in Detroit to become field organizers for the 2020 presidential election.


The program, which is called Organizing Corps 2020, is a national project created, in part, by the Democratic National Committee (DNC). It will be carried out in 10 other cities: Atlanta; Charlotte; Fayetteville, N.C.; Ft. Lauderdale; Miami; Milwaukee; Orlando; Phoenix; Philadelphia; and Tampa.


“We know that the key to defeating Donald Trump in 2020 is to organize early and put the best team in place to motivate Democratic voters to make their voices heard,” said DNC chair Tom Perez.
