What is OurTime.org?
A nationwide non-profit organization that empowers and speaks for the interests of young Americans. We’ve built a membership of more than 1,000,000 people by organizing campaigns that register and educate voters, advocate for economic opportunity, and convert political news into relevant language, short explanation videos, and shareable memes.
What are some of your key issues?
Key topics we discuss include voting reform, college affordability, equal rights, and job opportunities, to name a few.
Do you have partners?
We’ve formed partnerships with dozens of celebrities (Jessica Alba, Steve Carell, Usher, Sarah Silverman, and many more) and brands including Huffington Post, Tumblr, Yahoo!, Karmaloop, Funny or Die and Clear Channel to register voters, explain policy issues, and increase civic awareness.

Who is behind this?
A bunch of millennials. OurTime was founded by Matthew Segal and Jarrett Moreno, two friends from Kenyon College in Ohio who saw a need to make politics more relevant for their peers. It has since attracted many additional twenty-somethings to join the team based in Washington DC.
Are you liberal or conservative?
We like to call ourselves “pro-generational,” meaning that we carefully consider the majority views of our generation and do our best to represent those positions without shilling for political parties.
