Aaron Smith, Co-founder and Executive Director of Young Invincibles, has been in the news often since the founding of the organization in 2009. Most recently, Smith and his organization have appeared in the discussion about the upcoming health care law, part of which goes into effect this fall.
Whether it is about the resistance to the law, or how proponents are strategizing to implement it, the Young Invincibles are nearly unseperable from the issue. Ezra Klein sat down with Smith earlier this summer, amd Johnathan Cohn included data from that discussion in his New Republic article.
Below you can watch Smith talk more about who Young Invincibles are, and hear his thoughts on rising college tuition on CNN.
Young Invincibles is a national organization committed to mobilizing and expanding opportunities for young Americans between 18 and 34 years of age on issues like higher education, health care, and jobs. Smith and Jasmine Hicks, State Outreach Coordinator, of Young Invincibles will be discussing tools to engage Buffalo's youth in their talk "The Power of Our Generation: Tools to Open Buffalo."
On Wednesday, August 7th, Open Buffalo will present “Involved, Informed, Invincible!” an evening of music, dance, and activism and will bring civic tools to a younger audience as part of an initiative to achieve full democratic participation, diversify our community, and achieve meaningful economic opportunity and sustainable wealth creation for people of all ages.
