We have the responsibility to look forward.

We have the power to shape elections.

We have the ability to make change. 

Let's take action.


Young people have the power at our fingertips. If we get out and vote, our politicians will represent our needs. Now more than ever, our system should reflect our values.


The Numbers

We can make the difference.

Millennials compose nearly 62 million eligible voters. In 2016, about 138 million people voted in the presidential election. 

You do the math. 

Our. Vote. Counts.

We have active chapters in Chicago and New Orleans.
