    Researchers, politicians and marketers are keenly interested in the Millennial generation, born between 1980 and the mid-2000s. Also known as Generation Y, this generation is markedly different than earlier ones. For example, its members are less likely to be affiliated with religion and more likely to be politically independent. This group — America’s most diverse and educated generation — also is the largest in the […]

    Oh those Millennials! We older folks wring our hands, ascribing to the younger generation all of the bad habits that our own parents ascribed to ours. One of the more popular accusations is that they don’t vote, and aren’t civically involved. But what do we really know about the voting habits of this particular generation? A recent survey shines some […]

    The good news is that nearly 90 percent of recently surveyed millennials say they get news off Facebook. The bad news is that most of those social media users stumble into the “news” only when they go to the site for other purposes. Worse yet, what these millennials are getting as news from social media sites wouldn’t constitute news in […]

    The folks over at PoliTech recently decided to have a little fun at the expense of the students at Texas Tech University. Like Jimmy Kimmel who exposed how much Americans’ perspectives on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) have been distorted, a young student asks her fellow students basic questions about civics and history. When I say basic, I mean BASIC: […]

    There has been a lot of irresponsible journalism lately making sweeping generalizations about the so-called Millennial Generation. Beyond being annoying and contradictory to be called achievement-obsessed and lazy at the same time, there seems to be little interest in my generation to engage in the very institutions that our elders currently control. Catherine Rampell of the Washington Post summarizes: Distressingly, […]

    On the 4th anniversary of Citizens United v. FEC, consider the ways that citizens can engage beyond campaign donations and the ballot box. Today marks the 4th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision Citizens United versus the Federal Election Commission. The significance of this case is difficult to overstate as it gave limitless ability to mega-interest groups and corporations to […]
  • The Many Flaws of Indiana’s Proposed Gay Marriage Amendment

    There are more than enough reasons to oppose HJR3, the proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Indiana that apparently is only half as good as its predecessor, HJR6. My employer, Eli Lilly and Company, talks a lot about the cost to business. Recruiting and retaining top global talent – LGBT, straight allies, and families – will take a big […]
  • America’s Falling News Literacy

    Audiences for both print and broadcast news have been decreasing for a number of years, and the trends suggest further shrinkage in the years ahead. This lack of civic information is dangerous for a nation founded on the notion that power rests within the citizenry. People who don’t follow current events are less informed at election time. They are also […]

    Heard about Freedom Indiana? If not, here are a few hints about the demographics of this new organization: It has both Republicans and Democrats. It includes Fortune 500 companies and individual citizens. Hoosiers and non-Hoosiers alike are members. And they have a common cause front-and-center. In the aftermath of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions this summer on the legalities of […]

    In a major boost for Indianapolis last week, the Circle City hosted MCON13 in conjunction with the release of the 2013 Millennial Impact Report, a national conversation on how to engage my generation. Like many my age strapped with college debt, I decided against spending the ironic $450 to attend in person and instead watched for free online. It was […]
