Executive Director
Young Invincibles

As executive director of Young Invincibles, the nation’s largest young adult policy and advocacy organization, Kristin McGuire leads the charge to amplify the voices of young adults in the political process and expand their economic opportunity. She is a bold change maker who has dedicated her life to ensuring that the most disadvantaged populations have a place in our democracy.

McGuire’s accomplishments include shaping policies that protect young Californians as they enter adulthood, such as the College Student Hunger Relief Act of 2016, the California Student Borrowers’ Bill of Rights of 2019 and the Student Civic and Voter Empowerment Act of 2019. Through her work with the LA County Department of Public Health’s Project TRUST, McGuire organized residents to demand that the City Council mandate smoke-free housing and curb secondhand smoke at parks in communities such as Compton. She’s also worked to reduce recidivism of young parolees in LA.
