About the Event
On Monday, September 26, 2016, Party Politics US and the Millennial Action Project (MAP) are hosting a watch party for the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The event will bring participants together for a lively discussion about the current political environment and to watch the debate. Party Politics US and the Millennial Action Project are co-hosting the event with a shared interest in elevating bipartisan discourse during this year’s particularly divisive election.
Prior to the debate, MAP Co-founder and President, Steven Olikara and Atiba Madyun, Party Politics US’ Campaign Director and Founder, will lead a panel discussion featuring Rachel Hoff, Director of Defense Analysis at the American Action Forum, and Symone D. Sanders, former National Press Secretary for the Bernie Sanders campaign. The panel will explore the state of politics for American young people and look ahead to November's election.
At the event, guests will be able to interact with several pieces of rare historical memorabilia from Janay Smith of the the Jock Michael Smith Sports Collection - the largest collection of game-worn authenticated sports memorabilia in the country.

About Millennial Action Project
The Millennial Action Project is a national, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to activating millennial policymakers to lead a new era of collaborative governance. In the wake of the 2013 government shutdown, MAP organized the nation’s first and only bipartisan caucus for young members of Congress, the Congressional Future Caucus, forming an entrepreneurial governing environment for the next generation of leaders. MAP has scaled this model into the states—currently in thirteen state legislatures—to create pragmatic common ground on future-oriented issues. This work has led to bipartisan achievements on issues such as entrepreneurship, technology, 21st-century skills training, student loans, volunteerism, and more—including the introduction of the first bipartisan legislation on social impact bonds.
