Ed Markey

A member of Congress since 1976, Senator Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts is a leader on climate and clean energy solutions, environmental protection, nuclear non-proliferation, technology, and consumer protection. In 2020, Senator Markey won an historic re-election to the U.S. Senate in part by mobilizing the youth vote around climate action and a Green New Deal. Please join us in the Forum for a student-led conversation on the Senator's deep connection to the leadership of young people, the midterm elections, and the challenges facing our democracy today.
