The Millennial Action Project Welcomes Stevens to Nation’s Only Bipartisan Caucus for Young Members of Congress.

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Millennial Action Project announced the selection of Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI-11th District) as a new co-chair of the Congressional Future Caucus, a bipartisan group of lawmakers under the age 45 who are focused on next generation leadership and policy solutions. Stevens joins fellow co-chairs Rep. Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH-16th District), Joe Neguse (D-CO-2nd District), and Lance Gooden (R-TX-5th District).

“Congresswoman Stevens, through her spirit of collaboration and commitment to service, has a unique ability to bring people together across the aisle and galvanize them into action, having already passed several bipartisan bills through the House this session in areas such as the future of work and STEM education” said Steven Olikara, Founder and President of the Millennial Action Project. “We are excited to have her join MAP as a leader within our Congressional Future Caucus and on behalf of a new generation of leadership.”

The 116th Congress features a record number of Millennial legislators who took office in January. The Congressional Future Caucus was established in order to mobilize these young elected officials on both sides of the aisle and is part of a national movement to transcend political partisanship and focus on solving issues important to future generations. In 2019, the Future Caucus has focused on issues related to the technology in government, the future of work, higher education, clean energy infrastructure, and more.

Congresswoman Stevens released the following statement: “As Michigan’s first millennial federal representative, I have a responsibility to represent my generation in the halls of Congress. This year, I have sought to bring my perspective as a millennial to my official duties by working with the Select Committee on Modernization and serving as Chairwoman of the House Science Subcommittee on Research and Technology, a subcommittee with jurisdiction over a lot of the innovation and scientific research coming out of the federal government. I applaud the Millennial Action Project for helping get more young people involved in politics and public service, and I am proud to serve as a Co-Chair of the Congressional Future Caucus.”

While there has been a great deal of attention directed at dysfunction and gridlock in government, there is a counter-movement underway—led by Millennials—that seeks to disrupt the status quo. Millennial Action Project has spearheaded this work at the state level, establishing State Future Caucus for young members in nearly 30 legislatures across the country. The Congressional Future Caucus is leading this work at the national level.
