New co-chairs named for congressional caucus for millennials
The Millennial Action Project has named Reps. Blake Moore (R-Utah) and Sara Jacobs (D-Calif.) the new co-chairs of the Congressional Future Caucus.
According to a press release sent out Monday, the caucus is focused on bridging partisan divides and creating policy-driven solutions for the next generation of leaders.
Under the new leadership, the caucus will focus on issues that are affecting the younger generation, which include democracy modernization, sustainable energy solutions and technology.
“At a time when our national politics have become increasingly polarized, it’s inspiring to see these young legislators come together to model what it truly means to be in public service,” said Layla Zaidane, president and CEO of the Millennial Action Project.
“I am honored to serve as Co-Chair of the Congressional Future Caucus and advocate for millennial interests in Utah’s First District and around the country,” Moore said in the press release.
“I am grateful to the Millennial Action Project for creating bipartisan forums to discuss our country’s biggest challenges and engage young people in public service,” he added.
Jacobs also expressed excitement about joining the caucus.
“As the youngest member of the California delegation and the third youngest member of Congress, I’m proud to serve as the Democratic Co-Chair of the Congressional Future Caucus,” she said in the press release.
“I look forward to working with my Co-Chair, Congressman Moore, and the entire Congressional Future Caucus to center youth voices in Washington,” she added.
The Millennial Action Project was founded by former Reps. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) and Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) in 2013.
