April 4, 2020
On a Facetime call at 3:00 AM, The Greater Good Initiative was founded by Tarina Ahuja and Adam Ashley. the momentum was there from the start, and that momentum certainly hasn’t slowed down.
We have witnessed the power of the power in policy, the power of youth, and most importantly the power of dynamic minds envisioning dynamic ideas. We are wholly committed to being the generation that brings the ideals of empathy and equity to the world of public policy.
The Greater Good Initiative is a youth-led policy think-tank with the mission of promoting youth engagement and mobilization in the policymaking process. Our goal is to autonomously create effective, sustainable, research-driven policy proposals and advocate them to legislators at the local, state, and federal levels. Our team is crafting these proposals and connecting with legislators and special interest groups to garner support from both sides of the aisle. We believe that it is of vital importance to shine a light on the innovative fresh new thinking that comes out of young minds. By equipping young people with professional policy writing and advocacy skills, The Greater Good Initiative is working to bring new voices into the world of politics.
