The battle of ideas is one that we will win by addition and multiplication, not subtraction and division. Engaging and cultivating the next generation of champions for freedom will mean being both authentic and sharp.

In an era of 280-character “journalism” and advocacy, we need to ask ourselves: How can we reach millennials and post-millennials with a message that is uplifting? When the concept of “selling fear” seems to permeate every breath of our media, we should be considering how can we bring hope to the next generation.

Now in its fourth decade of championing the message of free markets and liberty, The James Madison Institute has served as the tip of the spear in engaging young people across the Sunshine State. They’ve reached more than one million students in middle and high school and have built a campus representative program on 12 universities throughout Florida. They’ve got a message, and college kids are hearing it.

On October 18th at 10 AM (EST), tune in for a webinar with Dr. Robert McClure, CEO of the James Madison Institute as he shares five strategic rules to embrace as we engage young people with the message of freedom and liberty in the 21st Century.
