Dear Editor,

The New Jersey High School Democrats is the official New Jersey Chapter of the High School Democrats of America, the high school wing of the Democratic National Convention. We serve to engage youth in the political process by organizing for, advocating for, and supporting the Democratic Party.

This election, the youth voter engagement, will be extremely important in electing competent leadership down-ballot, so our organization is mobilizing young people across New Jersey in national, state, and local elections.

This August, the New Jersey High School Democrats have some fantastic opportunities to get involved in state politics. On August 25th at 4:00 pm, we’ll be hosting a town hall with former Presidential candidate and New Jersey Senator Cory Booker. Senator Booker has been an eloquent voice for New Jersey, Democratic values, and is a strong advocate for necessary change. This is a fantastic opportunity to speak with one of our Senators.

On August 20th at 5:00 pm, we’ll be hosting a town hall and phone bank with Congressman Andy Kim along with the College Democrats of New Jersey. Congressman Kim is New Jersey’s only Asian Congressman, a gun violence prevention champion, and will be fighting a highly contested race this election season in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional district. Congressman Kim will be answering questions, and then we’ll be making calls to voters in his district.

You don’t want to miss out on these amazing opportunities to engage directly with elected officials and representatives of the Democratic Party. You can sign up for both of these events at Please email our Chair, Rachel Gurevich, at if you have any questions.
