A few weeks ago, 92Y Tribeca hosted a panel titled– How Youth Can Change Washington: Creating a Millennial Agenda featuring experts in the space including Abby Huntsman, Alicia Menendez, Michael Skolnik, and Joel Rivera. The discussion was hosted by Ari Melber who is an attorney, television commentator and a correspondent for The Nationmagazine. Lots came out of the discussion around youth and politics, but the overarching theme was that yes, young people do have power, and they’re doing things in politics a bit different than anyone has ever done before. Check out our video recap above with interviews with the panelists.
