MIL­LEN­NI­ALS WANT ‘MIL­LEN­NI­ALS DAY’

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

Pe­ti­tions en­treat­ing Pres­i­dent Trump to do one thing or an­other are many. One of the new­est comes from a pair of self-de­scribed “Mil­lenial lead­ers” who have launched a pub­lic pe­ti­tion to counter neg­a­tive mil­len­nial stereo­types.

“Mil­len­ni­als are en­ti­tled, dis­loyal, selfie-tak­ing nar­cis­sists that need par­tic­i­pa­tion tro­phies. Sound fa­mil­iar? In pop­u­lar cul­ture, these types of sen­ti­ments are of­ten used to de­scribe the Mil­len­nial gen­er­a­tion,” de­clare James Good­now and Ryan Avery, who say the stereo­types are “fake news.”

Their pe­ti­tion calls on Mr. Trump and law­mak­ers to de­clare June 19 as “Na­tional Mil­len­ni­als Day,” in or­der to cor­rect the record, and urge their peers to put in a day of ser­vice.

“Con­trary to pop­u­lar mis­con­cep­tions, Mil­len­ni­als as a group are out­ward-fo­cused and pur­pose-driven,” says Mr. Good­now, an at­tor­ney.
