At PolicyMic, we believe in the power of our generation to shape our political future. That’s why we’ve created an online platform for debate and high-quality political discussion that highlights the country’s sharpest young thinkers – liberals and conservatives alike.
At a time when the bitterly partisan tone of national policy discussions has alienated so many young people from politics, PolicyMic.com will transform the country’s political dialogue into a more productive discussion. Our mission is to engage our generation in an open exchange of diverse views by highlighting the brightest minds and setting higher standards for political discussion.
PolicyMic is driven by the fundamental belief that listening and being exposed to multiple perspectives – even those we passionately disagree with – will help us make better-informed decisions in the political arena. A far cry from the deafening and extreme voices that dominate today’s national airwaves, we aim to chart a new path forward by fostering healthy discussion across party lines.
By giving young people a respected forum to express their political views, PolicyMic also seeks to boost youth engagement and participation in politics. We offer young people the chance to take control of the discussion and become more active and politically-engaged citizens.
PolicyMic will educate and empower young people to devise real solutions to pressing political issues. No longer will young professionals with something to say be excluded from the national political conversation. With debates that focus on the issues and policies that matter most to young people, PolicyMic will transform the way in which our generation engages with politics and place the ‘mic in our hands.
