The Congressional Future Caucus is our nation's first and only caucus for young members of Congress (approximately under the age of 45).
These members come together across partisan lines to creatively and pragmatically forge nonpartisan common ground on issues facing America's next generation, such as enhancing American competitiveness and innovation.
Future Caucus members also engage in nonpartisan outreach to Millennials and build key generational relationships across the aisle. The Caucus consists of over thirty Congressional members.

Elections matter. They matter so much that here we are, nearly a year after the presidential election, and evidently Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are still running against each other. This is how divided we've become. And those two have done more to divide us further than bring us together.

The Future Caucus, formed in partnership with the nonprofit Millennial Action Project, instead makes an explicitly generational pitch.
