PHILADELPHIA, PA — NextGen Pennsylvania released the following statement following today’s projection that Joe Biden will win the Keystone state:
“NextGen endorsed Joe Biden because we knew he would bring Scranton values to the White House. Young Pennsylvanians are proud to finally have a President who will listen to our concerns — on the coronavirus, climate change, student debt, and every issue young people care about, a Biden-Harris administration will start to remedy the wreckage we’ve endured under Trump.
“Make no mistake: the most diverse and progressive generation of voters flipped PA blue. From Oakland to State College to North Philadelphia, young voters showed up. Early mobilization and sustained, targeted voter education efforts on naked ballots, deadlines, and election changes made these historic numbers possible.
“When the GOP tried and failed to make voting harder, NextGen was there to make sure young people followed through. We stood up to demand justice for Black lives, fought hard for comprehensive climate policy, and rallied behind the candidates we knew would move us forward: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
“So much went into this election, but young voters knew the stakes, took action, and claimed their power. This is just the beginning.”
