We are a diverse coalition of young people, organized to take power by winning elections for progressive candidates. We lead with authenticity and grit to help our generation seize power online, on campuses, and in our communities. Since 2013, we have registered over 1.3 million voters and contacted millions of young people, motivating them to take back our democracy and vote.
In 2020, we are fighting to take back the White House, the U.S. Senate, and state legislatures by turning out young voters.
Our teams are on the ground across 11 battleground states having thousands of face-to-face conversations with the people who will decide this election.

North Carolina has not voted for a Democrat for president since 2008; in order to remove Trump from the White House, voters in the Tar Heel State must show up in 2020 and send 15 electoral votes to the Democratic presidential nominee. NextGen North Carolina is also committed to removing Senator Thom Tillis, reelecting Governor Roy Cooper, and flipping the NC State Legislature to prevent more GOP gerrymanders.
New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary and independent nature solidify the Granite State as a bonafide presidential battleground state and a top priority.

This cycle, NextGen Wisconsin is committed to flipping the Badger State blue to remove Trump from office.
