CU Dems Campaign Trip 2019 Application
Join your fellow supporters of progressive legislation and candidates as we embark to the great state of Virginia to elect Amy Laufer of the 17th Senate District and Joshua Cole of the 28th House District! We will be leaving Friday, November 1st and returning on Tuesday, November 5th! THIS TRIP IS COMPLETELY FREE. Housing, transportation, and food is on us (or the campaign, but we'll gladly take credit)!
A first-generation college graduate, Amy supported herself through college working several jobs (including one packing fish in Alaska) and, after college, taught elementary school in Jamaica as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer. Inspired, she later enrolled and graduated from Teachers College at Columbia University in New York City (roar, lions, roar!). She's taught at several local Virginia schools, was appointed to the Commission of Children and Families, and was eventually elected to the Charlottesville City School Board, serving as its vice chair and chair from 2012–2016! Of course one of her priorities is providing high-quality education (universal preschool, raising teacher pay) to all Virginians, but she's also formed the group Virginia's List to help elect to Democratic women running for state office (such as school board)! Talk about paying it forward! She's a proud progressive running against an incumbent Republican—and we're going to help her win!
A native Virginian, Josh is a proud alum of the Stafford County Public School system, first gaining a love for politics serving as a page in the state legislature. Since that page program in 2005, he has served as a Staff Assistant to the Clerk of the Virginia State Senate, the acting Chief of Staff for Delegate Kelly Convirs-Fowler, has been a member of the Stafford County Public Schools Superintendent’s Equity, Diversity and Opportunity Committee, the Greater Fredericksburg Area Interfaith Council, and he currently is serves as the President of the Stafford County NAACP. In 2017, Josh ran for the seat, becoming the first African-American, and youngest person to receive any party’s nomination, however, in an underfunded, hard-fought race, Josh finished less than 100 votes shy of having the honor of representing the 28th District.
“I’m of here. I’m from here. My family lives here. The 28th is the only home I’ve ever known. And I’m ready to go to Richmond to fight for what the residents of the 28th need.”
— Josh Cole
Both candidates are facing tough Republican incumbents who, after the 2020 census, will be in charge of redistricting! We can stop the GOP's REDMAP initiative and ensure that each and every district is drawn fairly and that EVERY Virginian is represented well—not just in their on state, but in the federal government too!
