NextGen PAC Endorses Janelle Stelson for Congress in PA-10

The nation’s largest youth vote organization endorses Janelle Stelson in Pennsylvania’s 10th District

Philadelphia, PA – Today, NextGen PAC announced the endorsement of Janelle Stelson to represent Pennsylvania’s 10th District. NextGen PAC’s endorsement of progressive candidates across the country is an essential part of its efforts to engage with young voters and mobilize them to stand up for their values during this election cycle and beyond.

Janelle Stelson seeks to represent Pennsylvania’s 10th District and unseat MAGA extremist Scott Perry. After Rep. Perry has failed to represent the values of voters in Pennsylvania’s 10th district by voting against legislation to allow the government to negotiate lower prescription drug prices, voting against legislation to improve roads and bridges, and emboldening rioters at the US Capitol on January 6th, Stelson is running for Congress to protect reproductive freedoms, invest in public schools, and create a fairer economy. NextGen PAC endorses Janelle Stelson to continue to prioritize the values of Pennsylvania’s young voters and make progress on the issues that matter to the most diverse and progressive generation in American history.

“Young people have organized and turned out in record numbers in recent elections, helping our movement achieve huge progressive wins,” NextGen PAC President and Executive Director Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez said. “This year, our fight is no different, and we are determined to show up and use our voices at the ballot box to protect our country from MAGA Republicans who only want to take us back in time. As NextGen PAC mobilizes young voters in Pennsylvania to elect progressive candidates, we know that Janelle Stelson will stand up for our values.”

“NextGen PAC is proud to endorse Janelle Stelson for Congress,” NextGen PAC Pennsylvania State Director Cortney Bouse said. “In our nationwide fight to ensure that young people’s values are represented by our leaders, Pennsylvania’s upcoming elections will be critical. As an advocate of reproductive rights who has promised to address the rising cost of living and fight for affordable health care, NextGen PAC is thrilled to endorse Janelle Stelson for Congress so that she may prioritize the values of Pennsylvania’s young voters.”

In 2020, NextGen PAC helped mobilize 1 in every 9 young voters who cast a ballot, leading to the largest youth voter turnout in history. In 2024, NextGen PAC is focused on empowering young voters to fight for a better future, this includes endorsing progressive candidates and ballot measures, among other activities.
