NextGen volunteers did incredible work to elect Joe Biden as our president and to take back the Senate.

In 2021, our fight goes on.

NextGen America is calling on the new Biden administration and Congress to prioritize the needs of young Americans. This means student debt relief and a commitment to securing ballot access for all young people, especially young people of color.

To make this happen, we need your help!

There are a number of actions you can take right now, from contacting your representatives, to emailing the Biden White House, to attending a workshop on how to share your personal story. Click the actions you’re interested in joining!

Tell President Biden: Legalize Marijuana and Expunge Records

Marijuana policies in the United States were designed to incarcerate communities of color — and law enforcement continues to disproportionately target Black and brown people for cannabis-related arrests.

Urge President Biden to reform our nation’s racist drug policies by decriminalizing marijuana and expunging the records of those with federal cannabis convictions.
