Today's young adults are the first generation in a century who are not likely to be better off than their parents. Compared to previous generations, young people in their 20s and 30s earn less, carry more debt and pay more for everything from health care to housing. The current recession has only exacerbated these conditions, hitting young people of color and those without a college degree the hardest. But the Millennial Generation, a key force in the 2008 elections, is mobilizing to build a new national movement to address today's pocketbook concerns as well as to redress decades of declining economic opportunity and social mobility.

This conference is FREE

(Note:  this is not a Democratic GAIN event, but it is a great networking and skills-building opportunity, so we are passing the information along)
