Young People’s Political Engagement
Presented by Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life Briefing
Please join leaders from Tufts University’s Tisch College of Civic Life to discuss research findings and demonstrate data tools that shed light on the political and civic participation of young people in America today.
I am pleased to convene a bipartisan briefing for Members on Wednesday, July 11, 2018 from
3:30-4:30 pm in Capitol H-137.
Tufts University’s Tisch College houses the nation’s leading non-partisan think tank on youth voting, civic engagement, and K-12 civics education. Tisch College researchers seek to understand the political engagement
of all young people—those in and out of college—and they have a long history of sharing actionable, timely research. Among other things, Tisch College conducts the only national study of college student voting, with over 1,000 participating campuses, and their
researchers are uniquely positioned to understand students’ electoral participation and political learning.
Tisch College researchers recently released a
new index, which ranks the top districts and states where young people could have a significant influence on the outcome of congressional and gubernatorial races across the country.
The health of our democracy depends on reaching everyone, including all young people. Learn about interactive tools and research that can help you reach and engage youth in your district and improve the equity and impact of their political and civic engagement.
