Conversations With the Next Generation Town Hall

August 29, 2012
Tampa, FL

The Atlantic and National Journal hosted Conversations with the Next Generation Town Halls at the Republican and Democratic Presidential Conventions, bringing together top leaders for a dialogue on important issues facing America's young and emerging workforce. Young voters, who were critical voices in the election four years ago, are struggling even more today due to concerns about jobs, education and lack of opportunity. Yet, they remain a pivotal voting bloc for the candidate who will best speak to their issues.

In addition to the live events of more than 400 attendees, the Town Halls were simulcast on Xbox LIVE and the websites.  Below you'll find featured clips from both the RNC and DNC events, as well as the full video of each Town Hall.
