REVOLT 2 Vote presents: "Voices of the Future," a new TV series debating young voters' issues

With young, diverse, and credentialed political operatives.

REVOLT TV is proud to announce a new TV series about this highly unprecedented Presidential election.

Voices Of The Future features REVOLT TV host and Chief Political Correspondent Amrit Singh, joined by a panel debating the issues most important to the millennial agenda. Voices is a fresh take on a familiar format, swapping in young, diverse, and credentialed political operatives for the entrenched talking heads who are years removed from young voters' key concerns.

Panelists include Akash Chougule, Director of Policy, Americans for Prosperity; Brittany Packnett, Co-Founder of Campaign Zero; David Johns, Executive Director, White House Education Initiative; Juan Escalante, Digital Campaigns Director, America's Voice; David Bier, Immigration Policy Analyst, Cato Institute; Paris Dennard, former White House Director of Black Outreach; Symone Sanders, former National Press Secretary, Bernie Sanders; Matt Mahan, CEO of Brigade; Nina Smith, Co-Founder of Impact, and more.

It's a revolving door of experts with ties to the system but a new perspective on it.

"Young voters instinctively know when something's inauthentic; decoding what's real is the challenge," said Singh. "With Voices Of The Future, we're taking the next step in separating facts from the rhetoric about the issues that affect us most, through debate with people we can relate to -- members of our generation -- who represent all sides. Because the best way to get out the vote, is to inform it, and give it a voice."

The overarching topics for each 30-minute episode reflect REVOLT's original polling and research into the issues that are most important for younger voters, including the economy, immigration, criminal justice reform, and others. In the one-hour special episode "Campaign 101," airing on August 23, 2016 at 5PM ET (re-airing at 8PM ET), Singh and the bipartisan roundtable field questions from an in-studio Town Hall of millennial voters who express their concerns about the candidates, the electoral process, and what the political parties stand for amongst other topics.

The show will continue through the election season and beyond as a key component of REVOLT 2 Vote, our network's campaign to cover the political process. Singh and team will continue to report from the front lines of the upcoming debates, bringing it back to the REVOLT studio and engaging the Voices Of The Future to sound off on November’s big showdown, and our next President's first 100 days.

Voices Of The Future airs on Tuesdays at 5PM ET. Set your DVRs. They say you campaign in poetry and you govern in prose, but it really comes to life when you use your voice.
