Youth Voting Organization, Voters of Tomorrow, Endorses Josh Shapiro for Pennsylvania Governor and Austin Davis for Lieutenant Governor

Citing gun violence, climate change, and attacks on education, coalition of young voters highlights urgent need for leaders who will stand up for their future

Harrisburg, PA –Today, Voters of Tomorrow, a Gen Z-led non-profit that engages and represents young people in politics, announced their endorsements of Attorney General Josh Shapiro for Governor of Pennsylvania and State Rep. Austin Davis for Lieutenant Governor of Pennsylvania.

“I am honored to be endorsed by Voters of Tomorrow – and I am inspired by young people who have gotten off the sidelines and are participating in our democracy to make our country better,” said Attorney General Josh Shapiro. “From taking predatory student loan companies to court and getting hard working people their money back, to fighting to protect Pennsylvanians’ freedoms and constitutional rights, I have always fought to ensure young people are represented and protected – and I will continue that fight as Governor. Together, we will work to build a brighter future for Pennsylvania – one where every young person has the opportunity to thrive in our Commonwealth.”

“For years, Americans have watched Attorney General Josh Shapiro take on big fights and win,” said Voters of Tomorrow Executive Director Santiago Mayer. “Whether it is holding the Catholic Church accountable or protecting Pennsylvania voters from Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn an election, Josh has always shown that not only is he courageous enough to take on big fights, but bold enough to win them. With the far-right waging war on young Americans, Gen Z needs leaders who will stand up for their rights. Attorney General Shapiro and Rep. Davis have repeatedly proven that they will do everything in their power to support reproductive and LGBTQ+ rights, secure funding for public education, and protect the fundamental right to vote. Voters of Tomorrow is proud to endorse them in their campaign to be Pennsylvania’s next governor and lieutenant governor.”

“This year, when Gen Z turnout could be the deciding factor in elections up and down the ballot, it is more important than ever for young people to show up and vote for candidates like Attorney General Shapiro and Rep. Davis. The future of our democracy, of our planet, and many of our rights are all on the ballot. Voters of Tomorrow is certain that Attorney General Shapiro and Rep. Davis will respond to the fundamental needs of Gen Z and empower young people as Governor and Lieutenant Governor.”
