Political Organizing

Jeremiah Chapman is a left-wing political activist with an expertise in mobilizing left-leaning constituencies to achieve left-progressive electoral outcomes. 7 One example of this type of work in demonstration can be found by observing his role in organizing a 2019 rally supporting the impeachment of President Donald Trump. A June 2019 article detailing coverage of the event by ABC News includes a direct quote from Chapman in which he cites among the event’s outcomes “[training] people on how to meet with their member of Congress, how to speak to media, and connect their story to issues of impeachment.” 8 He further cites the over eight million people NextGen solicited signatures from for their impeachment petition as additional evidence of the group’s success at advancing a left-leaning agenda. 9 Another example of this type of organizing in practice can be found in an October 2018 article from the left-progressive news outlet Florida Phoenix, which details Chapman’s thoughts on, and NextGen’s work in advancing, Obamacare amongst left-leaning constituencies attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) across the state. 10Recognition

Liberal activists have recognized Chapman as a prominent rising operative. The radio station K97.5 Raleigh recognized him as one of the “Top 14 Leaders of The New Civil Rights Movement” in 2016; in 2013, the New Organizing Institute, a left-wing advocacy group most notable for training digital operatives for the Democratic Party and liberal organizations until it dissolved in 2015, recognized Chapman as a Most Valuable Campaign nominee. 11
