"Enter Generation Citizen, an organization dedicated to empowering youth through revitalizing civics education across America. Since its beginnings in 2009 during CEO and co-founder Scott Warren's senior year at Brown, Generation Citizen has grown to become one of the most pre-eminent civics education organizations in the country. Generation Citizen: The Power of Youth in Our Politics details Warren's international upbringing and political awakening alongside stories of how young people have always been the vanguard of political change. Generation Citizen is also a practical guide, providing concrete steps to jumpstart an engagement with politics. Through interviews with students and historical portraits of young people who have enacted great political change--from the Civil Rights movement to the election of Ronald Reagan to #BlackLivesMatter and the Parkland students standing up to gun violence--Generation Citizen shows that time and again, it is the young people who lead the way to change"-- Provided by publisher.
