What’s the Campaign for Young America? Beginning in March, Young Invincibles will travel all across the country to host roundtable discussions to hear young people’s opinions on the issues that they face today. Issues include health care, jobs, student debt, and many others.

We want to turn the energy, hope, and frustration into a way forward for our generation. Based on what we hear, we’ll identify specific changes we want and push lawmakers to address the barriers young people face. We don’t want to be the first generation to be worse off than our parents!

Who are the Young Invincibles? YI is a national organization that represents the interests of 18 to 34 year­olds.
