The Political Action Committee works to defend voters rights and raise awareness among voters—especially during election years—through large-scale outreach to voters across the country. These efforts include organizing voter outreach road trips, voter outreach phone banks on weekends, social media efforts, and proactive engagement with local and national media outlets. All of the Harvard BLSA and the Political Action Committee’s outreach efforts are non-partisan.
Additionally, the Committee organizes events that highlight the road to careers in public service and works closely with the Social Justice Committee to address national and local political injustices. The Political Action Committee also plays an instrumental role in identifying current litigation in which Harvard BLSA may contribute as amicus curiae.
