June 2-8, 2014 marks Millennial Week in the nation’s capital. As part of Millennial Week, a political forum titled "Power Forward: A Millennial Town Hall" was presented by The Washington Post.
Steven Olikara, President and co-founder of Millennial Action Project, was a guest panelist at the political town hall alongside Kristen Anderson Soltis, Vice President of the Winston Group, Raffi Williams, Deputy Press Secretary for the Republican National Committee, Atima Omara, President of the Young Democrats of America, and many other influential Millennials.
The panelists gave their insight on the influence and impact Millennials have on the future of politics.
Our very own Steven Olikara was awarded ‘Millennial of the Year’ for his work with the Congressional Future Caucus, co-chaired by Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL). In “building bridges of cooperation,” Steven was nominated for his work advocating for Millennial issues.
Millennial Week’s mission is “to cultivate, promote and present the most meaningful ideas and trends that reflect the impact of Millennials on culture, enterprise and society.” Various events are going on around D.C., from a political town hall to an entrepreneur forum to community service events. All are centered on the spirit of Millennials and what embodies us.
