Our generation knows that change doesn’t happen without a fight. We’re all too familiar with the battle at the ballot box, but we’re also invested in ensuring our voice carries further.
That’s why we’re driving forward the Youth Agenda.
As a generation raised amidst a climate crisis, an unjust economy, and unrelenting attacks on our most basic rights, we understand clearly the stakes of the current moment. This work, built on the shoulders of generations before us, has garnered unbelievable victories in the past decade. However, it is not nearly enough.
With a new year ahead, we are diving into our movement with renewed hope and energy. We believe in the power of each other and the power of our collective voice.
Our federal legislative priorities and Youth Agenda include:
Young people are the future of this country, but we are also the here and now. We are leaders driving our communities towards an America that is more just and more prosperous for all. These legislative priorities are not radical — we are simply calling for policy solutions that meet the moment — and the time to take action is now.
The organizations below are uniquely connected to diverse communities across the country, and have their finger on the pulse of young people’s needs and hopes for the future. This is the Youth Agenda 2023, a list of our priorities and our expectations for the year ahead. Together we can get this done and create a country that respects us, reflects us and represents us all.
