From the National Young Republican Federation:
Chairman Emert spoke to the National Federation of Republican Women about the need for working together to bring more people into our party.
This weekend I had the honor to speak to over a thousand Republican women at the 39th Biennial National Federation of Republican Women (NFRW) Convention representing the Young Republican National Federation. I spoke about the need of bringing in more millennials to our party as many in our generation have left the party. (See Pew Survey results). In fact, my call to action at the Convention was written about in the Philadelphia Inquirer this morning.
“The [NFRW] is working to reach out to younger voters, too. On Sunday, Jason Emert, the national head of the Young Republicans, reminded the room that in the last two years, 23 percent of Republicans under 30 have defected to the Democratic Party. “That’s unacceptable,” he said. He told the largely middle-aged, largely white crowd that younger generations are the most diverse the country has ever seen, and that the party must work to reflect them, too.” Read the full article here.
The Republican Party cannot afford to lose our generation. We must collaborate within our party to engage with more millennials and broaden our base. We can’t do this without your help.
