As you’re reading this, politicians across the country are aggressively moving over 250 bills to suppress the vote and spread the Big Lie of a stolen election in our home, schools and neighborhoods. On January 6th, 2021, the Big Lie got so bad that it literally led to an attack on the U.S. Capitol - a first since the War of 1812.
The crazy thing is that January 6th is not in the past. It IS the moment. A moment in one of the largest anti-democracy movements in the world. The January 6th insurrection and the failure of the U.S. Senate to pass the Freedom to Vote: John R. Lewis Act - the most consequential civil rights bill since the civil rights movement - exposed how fragile our democracy is.
Our politicians and courts have failed us. But unlike them, we have no choice but to continue fighting. The only thing that can overcome the attacks on our democracy is our generation rising to the moment and reimagining what a just democracy for all looks like in this country. Generation Vote is ready to do just that and we need YOUR help to spark this movement.
Generation Vote sparks an intersectional, youth-led movement that fights for our right to vote and a just democracy for all.
We are a cross-class, multiracial movement of young people tearing down the barriers that prevent young people from participating in our democracy. GenVoters across the country are rising up to reclaim our democracy and make electoral justice a major priority for our generation. Are you ready to join us?
In September 2020, Generation Vote was featured in “View From the Student Section: The Fight for the Youth Vote” by the American Issues Initiative
