global tolerance news: 18 April 2012
There are now more than 46 million 18 to 24-year-olds in the USA; the ‘Millennials’. They are glued to their smartphones, swamp the marketplace and elect the next US president. How do their personal and public values differ from the Baby Boomers and how does this matter to the American public square? That’s what the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs is set to find out.
"Millennials are important because young people possess the ability to be a unique and powerful voice in the upcoming election and in America’s future," Erin Taylor, the Berkley Center's Director of Communications, says.
Together with the Public Religion Research Institute, the Berkley Center will be releasing on April 19 a groundbreaking survey that polled 2,000 college students to provide unprecedented insights into the minds and value systems of millennials on faith and the 2012 US election.
The Berkley Center is hosting public figures and student leaders from around the country to discuss 'Millennials, values and America's future'. If you are in Washington D.C. on April 19, you can still RSVP to the event or follow the developments on their Facebook page and Twitter
