Conversations with the Next Generation
TAMPA: WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29
CHARLOTTE: WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 5
National Journal and The Atlantic will host "Conversations with the Next Generation" Town Halls that bring 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, the Town Halls will be simulcast on Xbox LIVE and the National Journal and The Atlantic websites.
Please note: Doors will open 30 minutes before the listed start time for all events.
