As young people, we might not vote in as high of numbers older folks, and we might not donate to campaigns in as high of amounts as wealthier folks – but we are the most connected generation in American history. If we wanted to, we could create a grassroots movement overnight before Washington knew what hit it. We are 80 million Millennials. They are 536 politicians. We got this.
Below are five ways you can kick back at Washington, starting right now. Some actions may take as little as 5 seconds, others up to 5 minutes. Every action earns you “political capital” which can get you bragging rights and even cool TCKB swag.
1. Connect with us
Join "The Can Kicks Back" cause on the Crowdshout mobile app to take weekly actions that will influence Congress – such as Tweeting, Facebook messaging and calling.
Send your "Message to Washington" about why you think our growing national debt is important and what you think they should do about it. Our leaders need to hear from you.
Signing up as a volunteer is the first step to getting more involved in our campaign. Where we do not already have a local leader, you can step up and assume additional responsibility on your campus or in your community.
Meet other supporters, learn from experts and hear from prominent leaders during our monthly supporter conference calls. You can also listen to an archive of past calls.
