MILLENNIALS: A WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE WHO GIVE A SH**
Born between 1978 and 1996, we are the babies of the baby boomer generation. We are not only the most progressive and racially diverse generation in American history, but we’re the largest too! The sheer number of Millennials– one third of the US electorate and 30% larger than the Baby Boomers–proves that this generation has the potential to be a political powerhouse to be reckoned with.
AND to top it off, we’re on the cusp of changing the world by standing up for what we believe in. Marriage equality? Can’t get enough of it. Climate change? More determined than any other demographic to take serious, gamechanging action to tackle it. Immigration reform? A whopping 20% of us are either immigrants or first generation Americans. Jobs? We need them, like, more than anyone because we’re the largest unemployed age group in the country.
