Check out this article in GOOD Magazine by former STAND Student Director Erin Mazursky. Erin discusses some of her most recent work training youth organizers in Albania while reflecting on the important role our generation must play in global politics.
I found her final words particularly powerful:
"We stand on the brink of a momentous opportunity to harness the power of a generation to redefine the way we relate to each other and to our governments and, in turn, tackle our most pressing challenges. But this window of opportunity is relatively small. Sure, there will always be youth ripe for empowerment, but the Millennial generation is coming of age now, and, given our sheer numbers, will set the political tone in countries around the world for at least the next forty years."
