Find your own political voice

There are 75 politicians under the age of 45 in Congress. Most people know little to nothing about them. Political Playlist informs you about these young leaders so that you can find your own political voice and have a say in your future.

Political Playlist began over some spicy tuna rolls and bottle of sake. We discussed how we were the go-to people in our own networks for political information and how we wished we had a ‘playlist’ to share with the young leaders we liked.

Now we do. And you do too. It’s called your Political Playlist.

Our Goals


For anyone who is too busy, too overwhelmed, too frustrated, Political Playlist is here to deliver concise, interesting information about our future political leaders from across the country.

Get Educated


Young politicians are dedicated to issues that will directly affect younger generations. With more of them in Congress, the future will be better represented.

When young people recognize themselves in a politician, they have a real reason to vote. Engage with your future by donating and volunteering.
