Future Forum is a generational caucus of young Members of Congress serving in the U.S. House of Representatives. Future Forum is chaired by Representative Stephanie Murphy in the 116th Congress. The organization was founded in April 2015 by Representative Eric Swalwell, who now serves as chair emeritus. The caucus consists of 50 Members of Congress who represent congressional districts across the country. Future Forum's vice-chairs are Representatives Antonio Delgado, Abby Finkenauer and Jimmy Gomez.[1]

Mission[edit]

The mission of the caucus is to address issues important to millennial and Generation Z Americans, such as college affordability, entrepreneurship, job opportunities, and climate change. Future Forum's work is guided by three core principles: Bridging the divide between young Americans and their government, engaging with and empowering young voters, and inspiring the next generation of leaders in public service. Since its inception, Future Forum members have traveled to more than 50 cities to meet with young Americans where they live, work and go to school -- at universities and community colleges, business incubators, job training centers, cafes, and breweries.
