    OurTime.org, a non-partisan political engagement organization for young Americans, has partnered with Grammy Award- winning artists John Legend and Common along with T-Pain for the Generation Now Party, a Presidential inauguration kick-off event taking place on Saturday, January 19, 2013 in Washington D.C.

    Hosted by will.i.am, Tate Donovan and more, the star-studded gala fundraiser will be held in the Kogod Courtyard of the National Portrait Gallery. Celebrating the impact young American voters had on this recent presidential election, the event will raise awareness of the issues currently facing the millennial generation and the importance of their ongoing participation in civic life.

    "We want to honor the leagues of young voters who turned out and played an instrumental role in this year's election with one of the biggest parties of inauguration weekend," said Matthew Segal, OurTime.org President. "The Generation Now event will convene young activists, politicians, entrepreneurs and celebrities to celebrate the millennial generation's efforts to help advance the country."

    The program will consist of exciting performances by some of today's biggest artists, red carpet arrivals, and a mix of celebrity appearances and remarks throughout the evening. Sponsored by Aflac, Microsoft, The Northeast Maglev, Karmaloop, Sycuan Tribe, Beam Brands, Heineken, Gibson, the US Immigration Investment Center, Comcast, International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Avenue Ventures, Lifeway Foods and Pfizer among others, the event is being produced by Clearpath Entertainment.
