Two of the youngest mayors in the country took part in a discussion on "the Future of American Politics." They were joined by two university students in a look at the role the next generation -- the Millennials --will play in American democracy.
Participants included: Alex Morse, the mayor of Holyoke, Massachusetts; and Svante L. Myrick, Ithaca, New York's first mayor of color. They spoke with Rachel Stanley, a junior at Elon University in North Carolina, and Mohammad Usman, a senior at DePauw University.
The discussion was part of the Millennial Values Symposium in Washington, DC, sponsored by Georgetown University Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs.
