CSA Founder Sam Gilman and former Maine Senator Olympia Snowe cowrote an op-ed in the Providence Journal on September 23 calling for greater turnout in Congressional primaries and for common sense political reforms to improve primary accessibility. As two individuals spanning geographic and generational gaps, both Sam and Senator Snowe argue that the U.S. primary system is badly broken and requires substantial reform. 

Five days prior to the joint op-ed, Sam wrote his response, What Boomers Miss When They Bash Millennials, in the Huffington Post to New York Times columnist Frank Bruni. In his articles, Dear Millennials, We're Sorry and Demanding More from College Mr. Bruni criticizes American colleges for failing to challenge students and apologies to Millennials for the mistakes of his generation. Responding to Mr. Bruni, Sam explains why Millennials want action over an apology and how organizations like CSA prove that colleges are still expanding students' perspectives.

Read both and see how CSA is prompting intergenerational conversations with U.S. Senators and top journalists to address the issues most important to Millennials.
