WHO WE ARE

Gen-Z for Change is a nonprofit organization leveraging social media to promote civil discourse and political action among our generation. Partnering with influencers, activists, and celebrities, we produce multimedia content on a variety of topics including COVID-19, climate change, systemic inequity, foreign policy, voting rights, and LGBTQIA+ issues.

WHAT WE DO

We educate our peers through timely explainer content about the news, legislation, and pressing issues that we care about.

We encourage civic participation and mobilize our audience by keeping them informed and politically aware year-round. We encourage our audience to take action when appropriate through donations, calls to Congress and voting in municipal elections.

We shift the political debate by flooding TikTok with engaging progressive content that hits more FYPs than our opponents. We also only promote issues, organizations, and topics that WE, as young progressives, support. We aim to shift the conversation left by engaging more young voters in progressive ideologies.

We enact change by working together, partnering with other organizations where it makes sense to create exponential impact, and by meeting our audience where they are with the information they need to make informed decisions in the voting booth.

OUR HISTORY

Formerly known as TikTok for Biden, Gen-Z for Change initially started as a coalition of TikTok creators using their following to defeat Donald Trump and his hateful beliefs. Today, Gen-Z for Change continues to harness our collective power to make genuine change in our communities. We’ve galvanized hundreds of thousands of people to take down whistleblower tiplines, urge their representatives to pass climate legislation, and so much more. Digital organizing works.
