What We Do
Achieve Systems Change
We are working to dismantle the structural barriers that our generation is facing, making it easier to build a representative democracy where our leadership reflects many different communities
Develop Bold Leaders
We are shifting power and broadening the leadership pipeline; opening doors for more people of color, women, immigrants, and refugees, LGBTQIA+, and low-income youth to become public service leaders
Mobilize Young Voters
We amplify young people’s voices in politics by using our proven holistic organizing model toward collective action that builds a more inclusive movement for a just democracy
