A New America

A New America: Los Angeles

December 6, 2013
Los Angeles, CA, California

On December 6, The Atlantic and National Journal, with underwriting support from Microsoft, will launch a series of town hall events–A New America: How Millennials Are Sparking Change–at California State University, Los Angeles.

Evidence is growing that Millennials may represent the tipping point generation, whose preferences and priorities are setting the direction for public and private life over the decades ahead. They are, by far, the most diverse generation in American history, with non-whites comprising about 40 percent. Millennials are on track to be the most educated, connected and wired generation, with a bent for entrepreneurship and service. We’ll examine the opportunities, inclinations and impact of this giant generation through these town hall events.

Friday, December 6, 2013 
2:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. PST
