Mobilizing American’s Youth (MAY)

I had an inspiring meeting this morning with folks from Mobilizing American’s Youth. MAY has more than 25 “mobilizer teams” across the country that bring together youth of diverse ideological perspectives to discuss issues and develop common agendas. They train these teams, partly using their Mobilizer’s Guidebook. They also have an online Youth Policy Action Center that provides information about issues and easy ways to make one’s voice heard. MAY is a perfect example of the core values of the “civic renewal movement,” as I’m calling it. MAY is ideologically open-ended and pragmatic, deliberative, collaborative, committed to political engagement (voting and beyond), and oriented to the civic development and leadership of the next generation. Whenever you are about to despair about our political culture, you need to interact with a group like this one.
