Daniel van Hoogstraten leads For Our Future Ohio as the Deputy State Director, a role he’s held since 2019, after serving as the organization’s Communications Director in Ohio since 2017. Since launching in 2016, For Our Future has held conversations with nearly 700,000 Ohioans about why engaging in elections can have an impact on issues that matter to them, partnered with dozens of like-minded, community-based organizations on direct voter contact and issue advocacy programs, and has established itself as a leader in innovative digital organizing tactics that complement the face-to-face conversations they have at the doors.
