How Millennials Can Move the Political Needle with Charlotte Alter

How Millennials Can Move the Political Needle with Charlotte Alter

Where do millennials enter the political conversation? Sharon is joined by TIME correspondent, Charlotte Alter, to discuss millennials in politics. Charlotte shares her thoughts about how the unique political climate of the past 20 years–as millennials hit young adulthood–has affected the way they view government, politics, and social issues. Together, Sharon and Charlotte tackle the reasons why it’s been difficult for millennials to carve out their own political paths, and share ways in which they can turn over political power to a more diverse and younger generation of change makers.
