At a time when young Americans face record unemployment rates, trillions of dollars in student loan debt, and a diminishing Social Security Trust Fund, Common Sense Action (CSA), a nationwide Millennial grassroots organization, released its Agenda for Generational Equity (AGE) during an event at The Washington Center. AGE is the first-ever bipartisan policy agenda designed by Millennials that specifically addresses the issues affecting their generation including entitlement and student loan reform, fiscal policy and national service.
AGE was created through a year-long process of rigorous research, discussion and debate across more than 20 college campuses where CSA chapters exist. The effort was supported by the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC).
Senator Bob Bennett, a BPC Senior Fellow, and Stanley Druckenmiller, former Chairman and President of Duquesne Capital, provided opening remarks about preserving the future for young Americans. A panel discussion about AGE followed with CSA leaders.
