Founded by Cody Milestone, Devon Kelley, and Terra Arguimbau, Model Citizens Vote is a newly developed non-profit organization with one goal: to stop Trump.

Formed by a group of young creatives all in their 20s, Milestone, a freelance stylist, says, "We were appalled at Trump and struggling to come up with the best way to take him on. The one unique asset that we have are our Instagram accounts. Instagram is a visual media and we work in visual industries, so it seemed natural to take our skills and social media reach and use them to stop Trump by turning out the youth vote to flip Congress to Democratic control."

Aiming to use Instagram's draw and power, the group recruited 40 friends with a combined following of 2 million to launch the initiative using slogans like "Resist = Vote" and "Stop Trump's Tour of Destruction".

"Our goal is to leverage these posts with a reach of two million followers as the seeds to grow a viral campaign that will reach many millions more," says co-founder Devon Kelley. "Right up to November 6, we plan to engage in a dialogue on Instagram with millions of young people to educate them on the extreme importance of electing democrats to the House and U.S. Senate, and to motivate them to vote."
