During 2018’s midterm elections, the electorate is estimated to have experienced the highest youth turnout in 25 years. Between this recent election and preparing for 2020, youth organizing groups are innovating and experimenting with bold new strategies to build power. From young people of color leading the way on immigrant rights and the school to prison pipeline, to post Parkland mobilizations and the Sunrise movement, these pacesetters are expanding scale, building alliances, and developing leaders. At the same time, funding for youth engagement often peaks around election cycles and disappears. To address some of our country’s biggest challenges, we will discuss how robust, year round investment in young people’s leadership that joins electoral and issue focused efforts, and advances a strong connection between young people and adult organizations can benefit the work already being done.
