Generation Progress educates, engages, & mobilizes a new generation of young progressives

As our 90 million strong Millennial generation enters the work force and voting booths, our programs will create an ecosystem for young progressives to develop public policy solutions, communicate effectively, gain leadership and advocacy skills, and build our grassroots power to create progressive change.
