It’s not about age; it’s about the age we live in. Our generation has grown up in a time of major change and it’s made us want to keep changing things—for the better.
Nationally, our generation—The Millennials—is the whoppingest generation in US history, more than 80 million strong. Heard of the Baby Boomers and how they’ve driven politics for decades? The Millennial Generation is WAY bigger than them and we are on the cusp of changing the world.
The Millennials were born after Elvis died (1977), and before 9/11/2001. This was all after global warming was discovered (and denied), but before Uggs came back (and were unfortunately not denied). All told, Millennials will be 36% of the voting age population in 2016.
