The Future of US Politics: Discussion with Millennial Mayors
As the country looks toward the November election and what comes after, many are asking: What is right and wrong with American democracy? How can we improve it? How can young people make a difference?
Mayors Svante Myrick (Ithaca, New York) and Alex Morse (Holyoke, Massachusetts) will discuss these important questions from their perspective as two of the youngest elected officials in the United States. Also participating in the discussion will be two of the student leaders attending the Millennial Values Symposium.
The discussion is part of the Millennial Values Symposium that is bringing student leaders to Washington, D.C. from around the country for a series of conversations about values and the future of American democracy. The day will feature discussions with elected officials and media leaders, as well as the launch of the second Millennial Values Survey that explores how 18-25 year-olds view values, politics, and the 2012 election Learn more about the survey release on the Berkley Center website.
