The Association of Young Americans (AYA) is a non-partisan membership-based organization that works to insert the voices of the 80 million Americans between ages 18 to 35 into everyday politics.
AYA works for young people. Together, we're holding those we elect accountable and keeping them focused on creating the future we want. Engage with your legislators, on the issues most important to you.
Here's the plan: In the coming months, we'll be rolling out our beta suite of AYA engagement tools. Our website's going to be your hub for staying informed, contacting legislators, and tracking bills related to issues you care about.
Get started by letting us know what's important to you below — we'll let you know when new things come up. It's time to speak your mind and fight for our future.
No spam, just the updates you need to know.

We need to talk about student debt.
Currently, more than $1.3 trillion is owed in student debt, and more than 42 million Americans are indebted.
Young Americans are the faces behind these numbers. Each day, we manage the consequences of repaying enormous student loans, working several jobs and struggling to make rent, just to pay off our college tuition.
