Millennials will be an important and powerful voting bloc in 2016—they represent over a third of the workforce and 30.5 percent of eligible voters, including half of eligible Latino voters.
But do we know what that means for the 2016 election—and beyond? Will young people defy expectations of low turnout? The Next Generation Blueprint for 2016, built by 1,000 young people from 160+ colleges and universities, captures the vision and priorities of a restless generation. The Blueprint answers the question of what will guide their vote—and, just as importantly, their enthusiasm.
The Roosevelt Institute hosted a breakfast with Katrina vanden Heuvel, Editor of The Nation, Dave Palmer, VP of Advocacy, and Joelle Gamble, the Roosevelt Institute’s National Director for the largest network of emerging thinkers and doers in the country, for a discussion directly informed by a generation already proving to be a potent force this cycle.
