Partner with us and help make #22×20 thrive

Amplify

We’re looking to partner with organizations to promote the 22×20 campaign, with the first effort focused on State of the Union (SOTU) action parties throughout the country. We’re asking young people to share their opinions on the key issues they’d like addressed, their vision for the country, and their response to the SOTU and related coverage.

Millions of viewers tune in to the State of the Union, and events like the SOTU are often a mix of substance and spectacle. Understanding the blend of history, substantive policy suggestions, and rhetorical performance can be tricky, particularly for young people.

To combat political disengagement among youth and misinformation in the media, we’re throwing action parties starting January 25 through mid-February in Washington DC, New York, Austin, Chicago, and San Francisco. We’ll have a “States of Youth” event in DC, co-hosted with DoSomething.org, the Smithsonian, and OZY, during which teens nationwide will share their observations on social media with #22×20. In New York, teens will be remixing the SOTU with innovative digital media tools at Sony’s TechLab.

 

Organizing Partners

This is a national campaign with local roots. There are several ways for youth and civic organizations to be a part of the 22×20 campaign.

Leading Partners guide campaign strategy and activities as a part of campaign working groups.

Campaign Partners amplify campaign opportunities and communications, while rooting the campaign in local organizing.

Media Partners cover elements of what youth are doing to speak out on and address issues that they care about, promote campaign content, and feature youth voices.

22×20 brings the rhetoric of youth as the future of democracy into practice at a time when the nation is talking about its future. Join us in listening to what these teens have to say.
