We are proud to recognize this powerful group of young people, while simultaneously recognizing the critical work of those before us.

NextGen is proud to work alongside these leaders who reflect the unique backgrounds and passions of the youth movement and our communities.

Leading up to Election Day in November, NextGen aims to contact millions of young voters to build on the momentum of young people eager to participate in our democracy and have their voices heard.
