Millennials – How they impact Arizona

Posted on January 25, 2017 • Category: Civic Health



THE ARIZONA WE HAVE

A few weeks ago, AZ Spotlight released the first of several reports on the latest results of the Arizona Civic Health Index. The first report, released on Dec 14, focused on the outstanding role that veterans play in both state and national civic engagement. Today’s report focuses on the role that Arizona millennials play and the need to engage them in shaping the state’s future.

As Baby Boomers retire, the role of millennials will become increasingly more important.

Chairman's Point of View

"When CFA set out to build a Citizens' Agenda for Arizona, we didn't know it would end up placing Arizona at the center of a national movement to resolve some of the challenges confronting democracy today–the growing lack of confidence that citizens have in government and their growing lack of participation in the civic life of our communities and nation.

In many ways Arizona is a microcosm of these challenges. This fact was made clear in the results of our Arizona Gallup Poll (2009), which identified the deep concerns that Arizonans have about the need for both effective leaders and engaged citizens.

As described by The Arizona We Want report, the people of our state are concerned about policy issues – jobs, education, healthcare, the state's transportation system, water and public resources – and much more. Arizonans also want more citizen engagement in the policy process, more active participation in the civic life of their local communities and more attention paid to nurturing and keeping the state's talented young people."
