Gen250 Committee .

The Gen250 Committee is engaging young professionals, artists, thinkers, activists, and others to join the planning for 2026. America’s 250th in 2026 promises to be a transformative economic, civic and cultural opportunity for the nation. We anticipate that USA250 will become one of the biggest civic and business leadership initiatives over the next decade, with a legacy lasting for years and decades beyond. We organized Gen250 not just to ensure that millennials have a seat at the table. Rather, we are enlisting young leaders now who will be central to the partnerships and implementation of America’s 250th initiative as we approach 2026. Please contact Nicole Allen White ( to learn more about ways to get engaged.

Greater Philadelphia Stakeholders Committee .

In 1876, nearly 1 in 4 Americans -- 10M people -- visited the first American world's fair for the United States Centennial. There, they saw new inventions such as the telephone, new monuments such as the Statue of Liberty torch, and they participated in cultural and commercial exchange with American states and foreign nations. USA250 was originally founded by a group of patriotic Philadelphians, inspired by the nation’s founding events and subsequent anniversary celebrations, to organize leadership for a far-reaching national anniversary initiative leading into and through 2026. The Greater Philadelphia stakeholders committee is an advisory group comprised of Philadelphia-area nonprofit, governmental, higher education and private sectors partners working to advance an exciting vision for America’s 250th in 2026.
