On the Rise Tour

Our nationwide “On the Rise” tour celebrates the big ideas of young legislators and equips them with the tools to achieve future-oriented policy goals.

The midterm elections saw a wave of young candidates run for – and win – public office across the country.

The “On the Rise” tour focuses on preparing our state-based Future Caucuses to transcend toxic polarization and bridge the partisan divide.

As we look to a new season of legislating, we are excited to continue to empower Gen Z and Millennial elected officials dedicated to improving how America governs.
