Check out what our CEO Laquan Austion had to say today at the National Press Club in Washington DC!

We were proud today to have our CEO Laquan Austion announce the public launch of Action for America at the The National Press Club. Check out a few highlights from his speech below.

"We’ve seen the terms Republican and Democrat become brands of divisiveness and separation. We’ve watched both parties abandon our generation, only to cater to a select few. And quite frankly, there are millions of people in this country that feel the same way."

"Where is our example of leadership? What about politics right now is supposed to inspire us? Where’s the swag in politics?"

"... we’re calling upon you. Innovators, entrepreneurs, artists, teachers, if you are frustrated, dissatisfied by the current state of affairs to join us. Join us as we embark on changing the face of politics and harness the passion and innovation of our founding fathers and our current generation."

Hey Mason! Looking to better understand criminal justice policy? Tonight, join the Generation Opportunity Institute in JC Room B (3rd floor). There will be refreshments and pizza at 7:45, and a viewing of their documentary- which highlights the serious flaws in our criminal justice system- begins at 8pm! We hope to see you out!

Our democratic nation should be a shining example of what real justice looks like, but it hasn’t lived up to its potential. We have 5% of the world’s population, but 25% of the total incarcerated population. Because of mandatory sentencing laws, thousands of non-violent offenders are serving out unfair sentences – often without the chance for parole. Weldon Angelos is one of those Americans. Tonight, they share his story.

HAPPY ELECTION DAY! Get out there and rock the vote! A poll conducted by the Harvard Kennedy School of Government estimates that only 1 in 4 of us will cast a ballot today. There's an ongoing trend of millennials thinking their vote doesn't matter, and that is precisely why most politicians don't consider their problems important. We all have views on climate change, immigration, wealth and income inequality, and especially student loan debt -- these problems will only get the attention they deserve from both parties if MILLENIALS VOTE!

32 days until election day! Are you registered?
If you don't vote, you're putting control of your world into the hands of someone else…and you have no idea where those hands have been. This is YOUR world. What do you want it to look like?
