The newest initiative of the O’Connor Institute, the Millennial Council, launched April 13th with a debut event held in the Great Hall of the Beus Center for Law and Society. Following several months of planning, the Millennial Council leadership determined that their primary goal is civic engagement and public policy education.
The event, “The Future Is You: Choose To Engage” featured Chris Herstam, past president of the Arizona Board of Regents, Chief of Staff for Governor Fife Symington and former Arizona Legislator who provided a power point presentation with facts and information regarding the status of multiple issues facing Arizonans.
The event was moderated by NPR affiliate KJZZ host and reporter, Lauren Gilger, a recipient of the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award. Following the program, scores of Millennials stayed for a reception to discuss what they had heard and its impact. The Millennial Council leadership is in the process of planning a follow up event for the fall and details will be announced in the near future.
