Political Playlist

Our mission is nonpartisan. Young voters and young politicians have an opportunity to shape what the political landscape will look like in the years to come...

Only 18% of Congress is under the age of 45 despite young Americans now being the largest voting bloc in the country. Most people know little to nothing about these 76 politicians. Political Playlist creates nonpartisan content informing you about these young leaders so you can find your own political voice and have a say in your future.

On this week's episode of Political Playlist Happy Hour we get into fiscal responsibility, gas tax holidays & stock trading bans. What are young politicians doing about these issues?
