Introducing the MPI Commissions

Introducing the MPI Commissions

We're thrilled to announce the seven commissions of the Millennial Policy Initiative. These commissions are tasked with seeking policy solutions to our generation’s biggest problems.

These commissions will work to make lasting change around issues such as Climate Change and Energy, Criminal Justice, Democracy and Voting Rights, Education, Future of Work, Gender Equity, and Healthcare. Each commission is comprised of Senior Advisors – prominent thought, business and organizational leaders who tackle these issues in their day-to-day work – and Senior Fellows – exceptional NLC alumni who are our some of our generation’s greatest thinkers and doers. 

These seven commissions are setting their final priorities. Stay tuned for more from each as we head into the NLC Convention where their findings will be released! 
 
Commission on Climate Change and Energy
The Commission will seek policy solutions to determine what vital policy initiatives are necessary to protect our planet, such as the role of technology in encouraging climate saving actions, meeting the Paris Agreement Climate Targets, renewing a commitment to a robust cap and trade program, and increasing the amount of protected lands.


 
Commission on Criminal Justice
The Commission will seek policy solutions to diminish racial and socioeconomic disparities in the criminal justice system, to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline, and to ensure that individuals who have completed criminal sentences are afforded opportunities to be reenter society as healthy and productive citizens.
