Best hip political action committee (2008)


Hoping to turn "cultural capital" into political influence, DOWNTOWN FOR DEMOCRACY organizes art auctions, readings, and indie-rock concerts, and designs merchandise to raise money, visibility, and votes for federal, state, and local elections. While the PAC supports progressive Democrats and groups organizing in swing states, they are also out to prove that political participation can be a hip social activity and art a potent political force—in both this election and beyond.
