Beyond the Ballot | The Time is Now

Beyond the Ballot is an initiative of Generation Citizen to turn the unprecedented negativity and frustration caused by the 2016 presidential election into meaningful and passionate participation. We want to begin a path to rebuild the foundations of our democracy. Our initiative is meant to teach, inspire, and empower the next generation to engage with—and lead—the political system.
