American Rescue Plan

Changemakers rated the American Rescue Plan a 4.4 out of 10, noting that the bill does not include long-term provisions that will allow young people to thrive, that it omits undocumented communities, and that young people’s needs were not centered in the bill’s priorities. We look forward to working with the #BidenAdministration and members of Congress to ensure a new era of policies explicitly designed to center the needs of young people and respond to their priorities, including the #AmericanJobsPlan, that we hope helps to close the gap. New Deal for Youth changemakers will continue to score legislation and policy proposals according to criteria informed by our personal experiences and by proposals they are developing with Congressional allies and partner organizations.

The New Deal for Youth Policy Platform advances radical and interconnected policy ideas that transform current systems, and that center racial, gender, and social justice. Our policies seek to redefine whose expertise, experiences, and systems of knowledge are valued, understanding that young people not only deserve a seat at the decision-making table, but that we can also shake the table and create the menu.
