Gen Z
Gen Z
Gen Z is the generation born beginning in 2000. They are the largest and most diverse generation is US history, as well as one of the most politically engaged breaking youth voter turnout records in 2018, 2020, and 2022. Most frequently voting for Democrats, the majority of Gen Z identify as political independents. They are complete digital natives who have grown up with social media as a major means of connection and communication, and, because of that, are more connected to peers internationally than any previous generation. They have also grown up under the threat of climate change, school mass shootings, and a global pandemic. Despite these challenges, they are funny, ironic, positive, organized, solutions-oriented, and an excellent reason to be hopeful for the future. In short, R2 loves Gen Z.
