The youth generation is at the forefront of political, economic and social discourse
They are credited for energizing Barack Obama’s campaign, cited as inheriting the nation’s massive debt, and known for challenging cultural norms with new technology and a progressive social outlook.
But they are largely being spoken about by those decades older than them. Those who may not understand how they view the world and the new tools they use to interact with it.
It’s time for young people to speak for youth causes. Especially as they continue to loom over the national discourse as we emerge out of the economic recession and move toward the 2010 elections.
UWIRE solicited columnists from our more than 850 affiliate papers to find three conservative and three progressive columnists to become the leading voices of the youth generation.
The columnists are “thinkers” in every sense of the word. These are their musings.
