Imagine a football stadium packed with fans all screaming for their team to win. Now replace those fans with passionate millennials cheering for the change they want to see in the world. 100,000 people all striving to improve the world is a powerful image. It is such a huge number - even greater than what most stadiums in the United States can hold. This number means so much to us because in December 2018, we surpassed 100,000 pledges for Up to Us!

Up to Us students host a table event.

The Up to Us pledge takes direct action in raising awareness of the country’s fiscal challenges as part of the Up to Us movement. The pledges are collected and delivered to U.S. Representatives, Senators, and other elected officials based on zip code, delivering the meaningful message that securing our fiscal future is an important priority for America’s next generation.

For 7 years, Up to Us has been empowering a movement of millennials who recognize how the nation’s fiscal condition shapes their future opportunities. This unique program provides emerging leaders a platform for initiating collaborative discussions while gaining leadership training. We are so proud of what we have collectively accomplished over the past 7 years and want to thank each and every one of you for your contributions. Whether you hosted an event, attended a rally, signed the pledge, or shared our posts on social media - you helped us reach this amazing milestone. 

Students participate in a rally for Up to Us.

Our accomplishment is proof that you matter, that your choices have the power and influence to initiate lasting impact. Lets keep the momentum going to propel us to 500,000 pledges, 1 million pledges, and beyond. 100,000 bright passionate millennials are already making moves in our society, imagine what we can do moving forward. 

In a political landscape where it can be easy to feel discouraged, this is an inspiring moment - an achievement worth celebrating. We remain optimistic and empowered to drive change and ensure a more sustainable future. We hope you will join us.

Up to Us students are passionate about national debt awareness.

Please share this accomplishment with your community and encourage your friends to sign the pledge. Across worldviews and backgrounds, it is amazing to see what we can accomplish when we all come together for a common purpose. Let’s continue to fill stadiums across the country and show the world that our fiscal future matters.
