Millennials surprised everyone by showing up for Obama in November, even though the honeymoon period was decidedly over. But now what? How will these young voters hold their president's feet to the fire, now that he doesn't have to worry about re-election? And where do young conservatives stand with their disheartened party? No matter how they voted, Millennials care about the economy as much as their parents—what will they ask of Obama? Join us for a discussion about where and how young people should exercise their political muscle and influence policy, after debunking the myth of apathy in 2012.
