In 2013, Tom Steyer founded NextGen America (formerly NextGen Climate) because he believed that young people had the power to determine a new, brighter direction for our country on every single major issue that matters.
Today, NextGen America is the nation’s largest youth voter organization, mobilizing millions of young people each year to support progressive candidates up and down the ballot. They are a multi-issue and multi-racial organization that works each election cycle to get millions of young people to the polls and win on the issues that matter to them.
They have registered over 1.4 million young people to vote. In the 2020 election cycle, we spoke to over 10.5 million young voters and got 4.6 million of them to the polls, leading to the largest youth voter turnout in our nation’s history.
At NextGen, they know it’s always taken the courage and imagination of young people to make our country tackle the biggest challenges we face. Our nation needs that courage again to solve climate change, racial injustice, runaway inequality and to save democracy itself.
At NextGen America, their mission is to empower young voters to engage in the political process and ensure our government is responsive to the largest and most diverse generation in American history. We are harnessing the power of young voters to reshape the political outcome of our country — not for an election cycle but for a generation.
