Politics

In 2017, Tom became the first major Democrat to rally millions of Americans with a public call to impeach Donald Trump. In the recent midterms, Tom led the nation’s largest voter-turnout effort. NextGen organizers worked hundreds of college campuses and city neighborhoods to increase voting by youth, people of color, workers and other underrepresented groups. Need to Impeach mobilized millions of its petition signers.
