With the backdrop of a global pandemic, national social justice movements that force reckoning with longstanding systemic inequities, and a new presidential administration, Young Invincibles (YI) will continue to advocate for young people without sacrificing our values, morals, and mission as an organization. We welcome new leadership to Washington and around the country, but remain steadfast in our goal to continue fighting for expanded economic opportunities for 18-34 year olds, both nationally and regionally. Our work will reflect our values of community, collaboration, equity, bold ideas, and young adult power. As an organization that understands the complexity of young adults’ lives today, YI focuses on the intersection of a range of issue areas that affect a young adult’s ability to achieve economic stability: health care, higher education, the workforce, and voting.
Each year, YI develops our policy priorities based on a combination of research and statistics, what we hear directly from young adults (including our national and regional Youth Advisory Boards), and our knowledge of policy and politics in California, Colorado, Illinois, New York, Texas, and Washington, DC.
