We deserve the right to dream freely, not be held back by student debt.

Protect Our Freedom to Vote

Our vote is one of our most powerful tools for change, and right now, our voting rights are under attack. State legislatures are targeting voting rights in an effort to silence young people and people of color. 

Youth-led organizations in the Alliance Network are fighting back to defend our democracy, but we need everyone in this fight. Here are four actions you can take today to protect our freedom to vote and defend our democracy.

Get #VoteReady

Getting #VoteReady is one of the most powerful ways we can fight for our democracy. And that power is in our hands. Use our #VoteReady center to get registered, make a plan, learn what’s on your ballot, and how to protect democracy.

+1 the Polls

+1 the Polls

The Alliance for Youth Organizing, Students Learn Students Vote Coalition, and Campus Vote Project have come together in partnership with MTV to expand voting access on college, university, and community college campuses across the country. 


National Voter Education Week helps voters bridge the gap between registering to vote and casting a ballot. During this week, voters have the opportunity to find their polling location, understand their ballot, make a plan to vote in person or remotely, and more.

Vote Early Day

We are proud to be a partner for the first-ever Vote Early Day. Vote Early Day is a movement of nonprofits, businesses, election administrators, and creatives working to ensure all Americans know their options to vote early and make their voices heard.

Want to take action locally?

The Alliance is America’s premier youth organizing network because our work is driven 100% by local organizations. When the movement succeeds, it’s because of the local organizations putting in the work. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters in politics is people power at the local level. That’s why we support the organizations that build it.
