On August 2-4, 2019, Millennial Action Project (MAP) hosted its 3rd Annual Future Summit at Vanderbilt University. A bipartisan group of over 60 young elected officials joined MAP in Nashville, Tennessee for discussions surrounding policy issues impacting future generations, and tactics to foster more collaborative governing environments in their statehouses.
Millennial Action Project today announced Reps. Katie Hill (D-CA 25th District), Anthony Gonzalez (R-OH 16th District), Lance Gooden (R-TX 5th District) and Joe Neguse (D-CO 2nd District) as the new co-chairs of the Congressional Future Caucus, the only bipartisan group of legislators under age 45 in Congress focused on next generation leadership and policy solutions.
Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and former U.S. Representative Carlos Curbelo were named among the most bipartisan lawmakers in the 115th Congress. From 2017-2018, Sen. Sinema and Curbelo served as the co-chairs of the Millennial Action Project’s (MAP) Congressional Future Caucus (CFC), the first-ever bipartisan caucus for young members of Congress. Curbelo now serves on MAP’s bipartisan advisory board.
Today, Senators Zach Nunn (R-15) and Zach Wahls (D-37) and Representatives Lindsay James (D-99) and Joe Mitchell (R-84) announced the creation of the Iowa Future Caucus, a brand-new caucus comprised of legislators age 40 and under.

On January 3rd, 2018, a record 32 Millennials will be sworn into the 116th Congress.
