Lunch Links- Millennials and Civic Engagement

Much has been written about the Millennial Generation being “Me, Me, Me” generation.

But it turns out that they are a generation committed to improving the world through community service.
They just don’t see government as a solution. (Except for the folks who apparently missed the memo.)

We see that in how they’ve taken leading roles in direct action movements much like that of the Moral Monday/Forward Together movements and in immigration reform.

It’s a trend that transcends party lines, reflecting a desire for a more inclusive, functional society, in lieu of a divisive, partisan one.
