The Next Generation (TNG) works with candidates and causes we feel passionate about, those who are committed to advancing progressive policies, protecting the environment, and making a difference in their community. For decades, TNG has worked to elect over a hundred of progressive candidates to local water and utility boards, city councils and boards of supervisors, countywide and regional offices, and the California State Assembly. We take pride in working with progressive leaders to improve communities at all levels of government. Our experience gives us the know-how to identify and maximize candidates’ strengths in the context of their particular election.
TNG has also built a reputation as one of the region’s most effective environmental advocates because we understand how to make real change at the state, regional, and local level. We have successfully teamed with a wide range of environmental groups because we share their goals, speak their language, and have earned their trust.
