Book Launch: Scott Warren presents Generation Citizen: The Power of Youth in Our Politics
Panel discussion with Ruba Tariq and Kenneth Lee
Wine reception to follow
Scott Warren, CEO and co-founder of educational nonprofit Generation Citizen (a featured organization in Greenlight’s Civic Engagement Series), builds on years of experience with youth activism to present a discussion that pulls back the curtain on our shared democracy and the essential role that young people can play to change it. This youth-filled event will celebrate the launch day of his new book, Generation Citizen: The Power of Youth in Our Politics. The book traces the history of young people in America who, through their own idealistic and irreverent action, have always radically shaped our nation’s history. Filled with vivid anecdotes and strategies for anyone ready to fight for the issues they believe in, Generation Citizen is an empowering reminder that we have the power to take charge wherever we are, no matter our age. Warren talks about the book with youth activists Ruba Tariq, and Kenneth Lee, followed by a wine reception to celebrate the book's launch.
