Young Voters Respond to President Biden’s State of the Union Address

In response to President Biden’s State of the Union address, NextGen America President Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez released the following statement:

“In a time of heightened political polarization and societal disconnection, President Biden’s State of the Union address resonated deeply with the concerns and aspirations of our generation. President Biden made clear in his speech that he is listening to America’s young people and that he is willing to work with us on the issues that matter most to us. From protecting abortion access and care to fighting climate change to building an economy that works for all of us, not just the top 1%, we commend the President for addressing these issues and fighting for our priorities.

“NextGen is committed to holding the Biden administration to their promises made tonight, as well as pushing for more. Over the past election cycles, young voters have exhibited an unprecedented level of engagement to protect their rights. It’s clear that when we organize, mobilize, and come together, we can push our leaders to enact policies which address our values and our needs. In the year ahead, we are committed to continue our fight for a country where we are respected, reflected, and represented.”
