About Us

URGE is driven by young leaders. We build infrastructure through campus chapters, where we invite individuals to discover their own power and transform it into action. Together, URGE members educate their communities and advocate for local, state, and national policies in solidarity with other justice focused groups.

Young people today are constantly depicted as disengaged and irresponsible. In fact, we are anything but. We are more progressive than our parents, more educated, and far more connected. We are powerful, engaged, and ready to lead.

We believe that justice will only be achieved once each of us recognizes the power of our own experience and joins up with others to create a different future. Working across the progressive landscape, we think, learn, and act together. We work together to build strong communities where sexual health is valued, reproductive rights are upheld, and each body is celebrated and supported to be well, happy, and thriving.

If you are ready to bring your whole self into the fight for justice, URGE will have your back every step of the way. Now is the time to discover your power, claim the conversation, and build your movement.
