Future Caucus chapters in each state legislature connect Gen Z and millennial lawmakers who seek to transcend polarization and get results for their communities.

State Future Caucus Network

Gen Z and millennials are bringing a new style of leadership to the halls of power. While young people didn’t create the problems we’re facing, we’re optimistic enough to believe we can solve them and pragmatic enough to know that building coalitions is a necessary step to creating effective change. 

Future Caucus programs help young lawmakers build deeper relationships with their colleagues across the aisle and get legislative results. One half of members of Congress previously served as state legislators, so training state lawmakers to govern effectively has a ripple effect across all levels of government.
