- Social Innovation Fellowship
Common Sense Action is a grassroots organization that mobilizes a network of youth voices who demand that society open the gateways of opportunity for our generation. We have three long-term goals.
- We build a grassroots network to elevate the youth voice to the policymaking table.
- We amplify the youth voices calling on government to open doors for the next generation.
- We reduce uncompromising extremism in politics through primary elections.
To accomplish these goals, we undertake issue-based campaigns as we grow our organization to more campuses. Our first campaign focuses on reducing the deficit and rebuilding the economy. During the summer, we will organize political interns in Washington D.C. to create Common Sense Action chapters on their respective campuses, expanding the Common Sense Action network beyond Rhode Island. We believe that the Starr community and mentorship program will be instrumental in helping us build Common Sense Action.
