Produktbeschreibung
It is often forgotten that America was founded by disruptive youth; four of our nation's Founding Fathers were in their 20s during the Constitutional Convention. Yet America has largely abandoned the inclusion of youth into the nation's most important policy conversations. Millennials, though the largest demographic in the United States, are the most underrepresented age group in government today. We are the most educated and the most diverse generation in American history, but our voices aren't heard; with 75.3 million of us by the end of 2015, we've mustered a lousy 2% of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives. In his book Political Gladiators: How Millennials Can Navigate the 21st Century Political Minefield and WIN!, Joshua Lafazan aims to inspire millennials everywhere to seek elected office in their communities, and give young candidates the tools they need to be successful on Election Day.
