The Millennial Action Project (MAP) is the largest nonpartisan organization of Millennial policymakers in the United States.
We are developing the next generation of leaders to transcend the partisan divide in favor of future-focused solutions and necessary democracy reforms.
We invite you to join the Millennial Action Project for an evening of conversation and action discussing energy, the grid, and the environment with bipartisan members of the Wisconsin legislature.
On October 26th and 27th, Millennial Action Project Founder and President Steven Olikara traveled to Nashville to participate in Politicon, an annual event that brings together some of the most recognizable and influential names in politics to discuss and debate the most prominent current political issues. Olikara participated in four separate panels, acting as a moderator for some of the marquee pairings that convened at the event.
On Tuesday, October 22, Millennial Action Project (MAP) partnered with the Brookings Institution to host a morning of programming dedicated to better understanding how Millennials think and engage around two long-term issues: climate change and the national debt. Spearheaded by Brookings Economics Studies fellow Dr. Stuart Butler, the event brought together leading members of the academic, political and nonprofit communities to discuss Millennial attitudes towards these issues, and explore what can be done to drive action going forward.
Tuesday, September 24th marked the 7th Annual National Voter Registration Day (NVRD) which encourages citizens to register for the first time or update their voter registration. To celebrate, the Millennial Action Project partnered with members of the State Future Caucus Network (SFCN) as part of a social media campaign and hosted events to engage with potential new voters in their districts. This year, NVRD broke an “off-year” record by registering or updating the voter registration of 400,000 citizens nationwide.
On Thursday, September 19th the Millennial Action Project convened members of the Congressional Future Caucus and leading stakeholders from academia, industry, and government to discuss the global rise of artificial intelligence. Over dinner, attendees discussed the state of domestic AI policy, the progress of computing advancements, the persistent need for human capital, and the debate around data regulation. Throughout the evening we heard encouraging consensus from most parties involved who agreed broadly on the transformational nature of this technology and the need for more urgent U.S. leadership.
The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network will be hosting Wisconsin Future Caucus Co-Chairs Rep. Adam Neylon and Rep.

Renewable energy creates jobs, supports rural communities and provides alternatives to conventional fossil fuels. Today, state legislators in Iowa from both parties took part in a renewable energy industries tour across the state.
If there's a bridge for partisan divides, at least in the state of Iowa, it runs through renewable fuel sources. Or so that's the thinking of the Future Iowa Caucus, a bipartisan group of state legislators age 40 and younger who swung through Mason City as part of a broader tour to learn more about energy "success stories" in the area.
A bipartisan group of state lawmakers toured two renewable fuel plants in Mason City. They want to better understand how to help this industry thrive and better fuel Iowa's economy. Four of the group were part of the Iowa Future Caucus. They are a caucus of lawmakers under 40-years-old who want to work together, regardless of party affiliation, to address issues of the future.
