MILLENNIALS WANT ‘MILLENNIALS DAY’
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.
