"The Michaelangelo Progress Fund" (Michaelangelo Hamilton)
Organized by: Michaelangelo Hamilton
#WeAreTheMedia - Help Me Cover the Inauguration and Progressive Protests
January 01, 2017
Welcome to my fundraising page! My name is Michaelangelo Hamilton and I am a local teen progressive activist in South Florida. My interest in politics began when I was in 5th grade and now I have become an active political leader for the South Florida area. In 2014, I went through a Fellowship program with Organizing for Action and I learned how to become an effective member of the progressive politics. I made calls, did data entry, and pulled up turfs on NGP VAN. All while I was an 8th grader going on to high school! Also, the training has taught me how to organize people in the community to advocate and become aware about an issue. A few great examples of my first experiences during this is when I hosted a Years of Living Dangerously Watch Party, and lead an immigration reform press conference, which became a rally when the reporter missed us. My training lead me to become few of the young people graduate as an Organizing for Action Spring Fellow Alumni in my class. I then went on to utilize my new expertise in being an community organizer for the Charlie Crist campaign, the Bernie 2016 campaign, Tim Canova for Congress, among others. Please consider giving me a financial gift to help me in my goal of continuing my work Florida, out of state, and maybe one day in another nation in getting people involved in the political process and educated, and sending me to key building programs that will benefit all of us in the future in this great nation. Thank you so much for your consideration and support!
