Events will showcase the power of the youth vote seven months from November elections

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Planned Parenthood Generation Action campus groups, NextGen America, Alliance for Youth Action, Center for Community Change, United We Dream, and local partner organizations are organizing young people and register them to vote at more than 200 #YouthVote Day of Action events across the country. Young people understand how issues like reproductive rights, LGBTQ rights, and racial justice are interconnected; they’ve seen how these issues affect their communities, and they are ready to make their voices heard at the ballot box this November. Harvard University’s Institute of Politics released results from its 35th National Youth Poll today, which shows that more one-third of Americans under age 30 indicate that they will “definitely be voting.” The youth vote was key to progressive victories last year in Virginia – and seven months ahead of the midterm elections, young people continue to demand political change and organize around issues like reproductive rights, gun violence prevention, and immigrant rights.

Statement from Nick Savelli, Associate Director, Youth Organizing, Planned Parenthood Action Fund:

Young people across the country are rising up to fight for the issues that matter most to them, and voting is one of the most important tools they have to create change. Planned Parenthood Generation Action campus groups are out in full force to register their classmates to vote because they know what’s at stake during the November elections. Whether it’s reproductive rights, immigrant rights, gun violence prevention, or racial justice, young people will be on the front lines of the next big fight, and Planned Parenthood is committed to empowering these young activists to make their voices heard.

Planned Parenthood Generation Action, a project of Planned Parenthood Action Fund, is committed to building a robust, national network of young leaders and giving them the tools needed to create change through a range of national campaigns, conferences, and leadership opportunities. Through Generation Action and its network of more than 300 campus groups, young organizers and activists across the country organize events on their campuses and in their communities to mobilize advocates for reproductive freedom.



Planned Parenthood Action Fund is an independent, nonpartisan, not-for-profit membership organization formed as the advocacy and political arm of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
