Lawmakers Take Part in MAP Future Summit

Florida lawmakers are doing their darnedest to break the millennial stereotypes.

Senate President pro tempore Anitere Flores, Senate Democratic Leader Oscar Braynon and state Rep. Shevrin Jones recently traveled to Boston to take part in the Millennial Action Project’s 2017 Future Summit.

The annual event, held at Tufts University School of Medicine, gave young state legislators a chance to network with their peers from across the country, discuss practices and strategies for bipartisan leadership, and chat with policy experts on future-focused issues.

“I was honored to spend the weekend with a group of young leaders from around the country who are on the frontlines of preparing positive public policy for generations to come,” Jones said in a statement. “As a member of the bipartisan Florida Future Caucus, I’ve seen firsthand how much we can accomplish when we focus on innovative and forward-looking solutions to the problems our state is facing.”

The Florida Future Caucus was launched in April, and is made up of a bipartisan group of state lawmakers under the age of 40. Similar caucuses have been established in 18 states, including Texas and California.
