NextGen PAC announced the endorsement of Lindsay Powell for Pennsylvania’s 21st House of Representatives District ahead of this year’s special elections. The endorsement is a critical part of NextGen PAC’s efforts to mobilize thousands of young voters across the country in support of Democratic candidates in this election cycle and beyond.
NextGen PAC is endorsing Powell for her commitment to social justice and addressing inequality. With a specific focus on economic equity and making the local economy work for working class families, Powell is a candidate committed to the growth of her community.
“NextGen PAC is proud to endorse Lindsay Powell for the state house seat in Pennsylvania,” NextGen PAC President Cristina Tzintzún Ramirez said. “In our fight to build a better, more representative future, every race is critical. From abortion rights to economic justice, these candidates are showing up and working on behalf of young people to build better communities. As NextGen works to mobilize young voters in Pennsylvania to elect progressive candidates, we know Powell is a person who will fight for and represent young voters’ values and beliefs.”
In 2020, NextGen PAC helped mobilize one in every nine young voters who cast a ballot, leading to the largest youth voter turnout in history. Leading up to 2024, NextGen PAC is focused on empowering young voters to fight for a better future, this includes endorsing progressive candidates and ballot measures, among other activities.
