What is the Youth Unity Pledge?
The Youth Unity Pledge is a Young Americans Coalition for Unity initiative that contains two main parts. The first part of the pledge is a way for people to show that we are tired of hyperpartisanship in our country and want to open the table to bipartisan political discussion. The pledge encourages those who sign it to read our guide to bipartisan political discussion as well as have political discussions with three friends. In addition, the second part of the pledge is one for politicians to sign that shows to young people that they are stepping up to be a bipartisan leader in politics.
Why is the Youth Unity Pledge important?
Politics has become too divisive; people are unwilling to talk to each other simply because of opposing views. The Young Americans Coalition for Unity believes that it is important to be open minded in politics and be willing to work across the aisle. The Youth Unity Pledge both engages students in civil political discussion and also promotes unity and bipartisanship among politicians.
