YOUNG & POWERFUL

Youth power has arrived in Colorado and we're taking charge of our future. Our generation is the most progressive, the most diverse, the most unstoppable in history. WE are the leaders we’ve been waiting for!

A WHOLE LOTTA POWER

We're reinventing politics-as-usual by leading the charge to tackle today’s biggest issues and lifting up our communities along the way. Our generation is full of powerhouse activists who are launching massive, nationwide marches, holding our leaders accountable to represent us and our values, serving in office, and organizing our schools and communities to create the change we want to see. We know this work is best done peer-to-peer, so New Era organizes year-round to make sure our generation is registered to vote and actively shaping Colorado's policies and future. The best part? We're just getting started!
