Generation Progress works with and for young people around the country to make sure that their voices are heard loud and clear on the issues that matter to them. GP’s youth-led and -driven work engages and trains primarily 18- to 35-year-olds building powerful movements on the issues impacting our generation. We win victories for young people today while empowering leaders who will fight for our communities on the issues that matter for decades to come.

Generation Progress has been leading youth-driven change on progressive issues since its original founding as Campus Progress in 2005. Rebranding in 2013 to Generation Progress, to be more inclusive of the entire generation, our team has been at the forefront of developing young leaders to push for our collective vision of a progressive future for over a decade.

An investment in the power-building work of Generation Progress means that the Millennials and Generation Z, the largest and most diverse generations in American history, will have young leaders and an infrastructure to mobilize to engage in the progressive policy fights of today and tomorrow.
