Generation Opportunity — A Tool for Grassroots Movements for Young Americans

The full-featured site makes it possible for young Americans to share their personal experiences, organize local events, and take action. It will serve as a repeat destination for those who are interested in making a difference.

One of the fastest growing and largest grassroots organizations in the nation helping to organize and mobilize young adults through a strategy based on social media and ground operations has launched a new grassroots website — Generation Opportunity.

The organization has already amassed more than 1.6 million fans through its Facebook pages “Being American” and “The Constitution”. It continues to make available communications platforms that provide tools to young Americans eager to learn more about major national issues, become more engaged and civically involved, and organize their friends to work toward solutions on issues such as jobs and unemployment, federal debt and spending, energy, American competitiveness and more.

“Based on their first-hand experiences looking for work and that of their friends, young Americans are more committed than ever to change the status quo posed by a dismal economy, failed policies, and a lack of jobs. We built this grassroots site based on feedback from thousands of Millennials across the nation. We believe they will use it to further their efforts to organize their friends, colleagues, and communities and to have their voices and votes fully respected,” said Paul T. Conway, President of Generation Opportunity and a former Chief of Staff of the United States Department of Labor. “Young adults have been patient long enough – they want more opportunity, faster job creation, and less government intervention. They are fully committed to organizing around solutions that improve the daily lives of every American.”
