Healthy conflict, innovative solutions

Future Caucus’ Innovation Lab is a hub for policy education and bridge-building. 

It offers a unique opportunity for young lawmakers throughout the country to connect with policy experts across the political spectrum on the topics and issues that matter most to their constituents. It’s an engine for healthy conflict and innovative solutions. 

Ultimately, the Innovation Lab equips lawmakers to be more effective at getting results on the problems they were elected to solve.

All members of Future Caucus have access to a policy library, live briefings, on-demand experts, and connections to other lawmakers working on the issues they care about.

This cross-partisan, future-oriented space helps young lawmakers gain the tools and knowledge needed to advance solutions, repair American politics, and inspire new faith in our republic. Our policy accelerator fills a critical gap lawmakers face: where to find unbiased, evidence-based ideas to solve generational challenges.

The Innovation Lab connects the dots between the next generation of legislators and politically diverse experts and thought leaders to support bridge-building on key issues. Through content, events, and working groups to tackle big challenges, Future Caucus and its network of experts, practitioners, and thought leaders continue to convene and catalyze lawmakers to innovate around these areas. 

Innovation Fellowship

Rooted in the understanding that political polarization presents new and unique obstacles to modern policymaking, the Innovation Fellowship cultivates the next generation of national leaders with the skills to build bipartisan coalitions and pass effective legislation.

Applications for our next class of Fellows open July 27, 2024.

Innovation Agenda

Authored by hundreds of Gen Z and millennial legislators, the Innovation Agenda is a roadmap for collaboration on public policy solutions to confront critical issues.

Futures Thinking Forum

Casting a long-term positive vision for our country is a skill that can be cultivated. The Futures Thinking Forum equips lawmakers to be resident “futurists” in legislatures across America.

Tackling generational challenges, together

The Innovation Lab convenes lawmakers and policy experts around topics that impact people across the political spectrum and have seen bipartisan solutions advanced across the country.
