Washington, D.C.— Generation Progress, the youth-engagement arm of the Center for American Progress, announced today the launch of a new, revamped website. Genprogress.org effortlessly merges Generation Progress’ leading reports and analysis on young people, with the voices of America’s youth. The new website allows users to navigate Generation Progress’ issue areas, including student debt, gun violence prevention, criminal justice reform, environment, health care, democracy, and others, with opportunities to take action on and offline.
“Young people are at the center of some of the most powerful social and political movements, fighting back against regressive policies, and leading America into a more inclusive and progressive future. Our new website reflects their work, their power, and their influence,” said Charlotte Hancock, communications director for Generation Progress. “On the new site, users will be able to find groundbreaking gun violence reports like America’s Youth Under Fire, resources on student debt, and opportunities to take action on a variety of issues.”
Over the last year, Generation Progress had remarkable success uplifting the voices of young people. The youth-led organization visited 10 American cities with ”We Are Progress,” a series of trainings that equipped activists with the tools and resources necessary to mobilize young people. In the spring, Generation Progress hosted the #Fight4AFuture summit, bringing together more than 100 gun violence survivors, activists, and students, to arm them with the tools necessary to fight back against the gun lobby and advocate for their communities at the local and national level. Generation Progress also released a series of case studies highlighting the work of local organizers around gun violence prevention and criminal justice reform; mobilized hundreds of people against Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination; launched the #ClimateVoter campaign; and continued to lead on progressive solutions to the student debt crisis.
