Austin, TX -- Representative Mary E. González will be co-sponsoring the first ever Young Leaders Economic Summit this Thursday, November 13th, with Generation Progress at the Texas State Capitol. One of four state-focused policy summits for Millennials across the country, this is an opportunity for young leaders and advocates from across the state to organize around barriers to economic engagement for young adults in Texas, and how they can overcome these obstacles.

Who: Office of State Representative Mary E. González and Generation Progress
What: Young Leaders Economic Summit
When: November 13th
Where: Texas State Capitol

"When Generation Progress mentioned this plan to me, and their intention to include Texas as one of the four state summits, I immediately saw the importance of this opportunity for young leaders across our state," State Rep. González said. "Young people in Texas are struggling, and more often than not, they feel disengaged from the economy.

Millennials in Texas are innovative, intelligent, passionate, and driven - but they need policies that will support their engagement in the economy. This Summit gives young leaders across the state a seat at the table, so that we can create policy that really addresses their needs and opens up avenues for their success."
