Young adult political power is growing, yet we tend to have the lowest voter turnout of any age group. We vote less than older demographics in presidential elections, and the gap is even greater in local and state elections.

As a young senator, I am a strong believer in the capacity of young adults to help transform the community as well as the need for young adults to have the ear and support of their legislators, as we all work to make a better future for our community.
My young adult task force, Task Force Next, is hosting a Networking Mixer for young professionals, students, artists, activists, and community leaders (21 to 40) to share resources and learn about the actions my task force will be leading as the 2020 Census and 2020 Election approaches.
