How Elections Change Next Gen Cause Engagement

Mar 11, 2017

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

Fact: Millennials value cause engagement. But what happens during an election year? Could politics influence how this generation participates in social causes? Achieve, in partnership with the Case Foundation issued a special survey to answer this very question. The survey tracked the impact of the election on the way in which millennials from across the country engaged with social causes—both before and after the election. The final 2016 Millennial Impact Report identified what, if any, demographic factors are connected to engagement trends. The final report will be debuted exclusively at SXSW and reveal key shifts that will alter how we think about this generation of changemakers.
