Andrew Goodman National Civic Leadership Training Summit

Legacy Summer 2022
August 11-12, 2022

As momentum builds toward November’s 2020 Midterm Elections, we are inspired by the spirit of 1964’s Freedom Summer. The Andrew Goodman Foundation was established in memory of Andrew Goodman, a civil rights worker who was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan, alongside activists James Earl Chaney and Michael Schwerner, for registering Black Americans to vote in Mississippi’s Freedom Summer.

We believe that the movement of young people that propelled Freedom Summer did not end in 1964, but continues on today and will tomorrow through the spirit of young people who persistently fight for equitable voting rights. Young people have always been and will always be the changemakers who push us forward toward a just and inclusive democracy.

On August 11-12, 2022, The Andrew Goodman Foundation will host its eighth annual Andrew Goodman National Civic Leadership Training Summit, themed Legacy Summer 2022. During this virtual event, Andrew Goodman Ambassadors and young people from our partner organizations will gather to hear inspiring panels and participate in training sessions, just as young organizers did ahead of Freedom Summer. They will leave the event prepared and ready to lead the movement of young voters to the 2022 Midterm Elections.

Incubating a New Generation of Leaders at the Andrew Goodman National Civic Leadership Training Summit

On the 50th anniversary of the Voting Right Act, The Andrew Goodman Foundation hosted its first Andrew Goodman National Civic Leadership Training Summit. Every year, we bring together Andrew Goodman Ambassadors from participating campuses for several days of intensive training. Through hands-on projects, lectures, and leadership development activities, Andrew Goodman Ambassadors learn the fundamentals of impact-oriented campus organizing and voter engagement. The Summit is offered exclusively to Andrew Goodman Ambassadors, with preference given to Andrew Goodman Team Leaders. For more information, contact your campus’s Program Manager.
