On March 19 MAP's President and Co-Founder Steven Olikara attended the Citizen University National Conference to participate on the New Political Storylines panel. Nested under the broader topic of The Power of Narrative, the panelists discussed how demographics and ideologies continue to shift, causing new citizen narratives to emerge. Spanning political party lines, the panelists brought their ideologies together to debate which storyline about today's American electorate is the most important.
