Next Generation Perspectives
This election season, Generation Citizen and GOOD want the country to hear what young people think!
Check out a recording of our first panel discussion here!
We will be hosting weekly panels during the 2012 presidential race for 16- to 24-year-olds throughout the country to ask young people about their opinions on the current state of politics, nationally and locally. We will start these the day after the first Presidential Debate (October 4th) and run them through the election. We’re honored to have Callie Schweitzer, the Director of Marketing and Special Projects at Vox Media and an award-winning journalist, moderate the discussions, which will take place on Google Hangouts.
These panels will be filmed and live-streamed, moderated by influencers and local community leaders, continued in extensive social media conversations. We’ll discuss the current issues of the day, as well as pressing political issues affecting young people.
