NextGen America
National Organizing Team

NextGen America fights for progressive change by growing and wielding the grassroots power of young people in elections. With the efforts of thousands of volunteers to make calls and send texts, we mobilized the youth vote to elect Joe Biden as our president and take back the Senate. But there is still more to do, and we are excited to have you join us.

In 2021, we will train and mobilize our network of NextGen activists to advocate to our members of Congress and other elected officials for progressive change that affects the lives of young voters.
