|Millennials, Activism, and Race... Don't Call Them 'Post-Racial'|
The “Millennial Generation” (born post-1980, ages 18-30) is the largest, most racially and ethnically diverse generation the US has ever known.
Over the last two years, the Applied Research Center has conducted focus groups around the U.S. with millennials of varying races/enthnicities to find out more about their attitudes and perspective. It is clear that race continues to play a role in their lives. What inspires them to engage in social justice work? ARC has produced two reports available for download below - they offer key findings and recommendations, illustrated with infographics, and accompanied by videos. A few select quotes are also available here: MILLENNIALS IN THEIR OWN WORDS.

Additionally Colorlines.com, ARC’s daily news site, offers essays, reporting and videos on millennials, Occupy protesters, and their connection to racial justice work.
ARC PRESIDENT & COLORLINES PUBLISHER RINKU SEN: “With recent Census data showing the majority of new births to be those of people of color, it’s not surprising that far from being ‘post-racial,’ millennials see that we have to talk about race to achieve social justice."
ARC RESEARCH DIRECTOR DOMINIQUE APOLLON: "From a researcher's perspective, it was a dream to hear from some of the most engaged progressive young people in the country. And to provide a forum for them to express themselves freely, in ways that we hope readers of all ages and races will appreciate."
