One Year in Politics

The book, One Year in Politics, is the first project within the Politics Project, an initiative founded to support creative and research projects relating to Democratic and progressive politics.

The body of work is a result of 225+ first-time campaign staffers responding to  the short-term memory between political cycles. ‘One Year in Politics’ documents the experiences of young staffers to help win more elections.
