Hybrid Hybrid Event

On April 12 at 7 p.m., John Della Volpe will discuss his book “Fight: How Gen Z is channeling their fear and passion to save America.” The book covers the coming of age of the 70 million young people in America born in a 20-year period beginning in the mid-1990s. Volpe examines the political awakening of this generation that has come largely during the Trump era, as well as what he describes as a “significant mental health crisis,” intensified by the state of the country’s politics. Volpe, the Harvard Institute of Politics Polling Director, also led a town hall meeting for students at the Dole Institute in 2015. He is known as one of the world’s leading authorities on global sentiment, opinion, and influence, especially among young Americans and in the age of digital and social media.
