Using Opinions to Reach Young People

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

How can your opinion journalism bridge the gap between potential college-age audience members’ political activism and their lack of knowledge and access to high-quality information? How do you cut through the noise and provide the structure and reliability young people seek with the goal of fostering a vibrant democracy and a more unified civic -- and civil -- life? This generation has had less civic education than previous generations, especially in K-12. It has been eliminated from school curricula across the country. A recent Knight Foundation/Gallup study said that more than 60 percent of college students show strong support for the First Amendment. However, some say that diversity and inclusion are more important to a democracy than free speech.
