Class of Hope and Change: The Book

“A beautiful movement of love, trust, and truth.”

Millennials, the people who entered adulthood during the first 18 years of the 21st century, came of age during one of the most dramatic periods in modern human history. The rapid changes taking place in their individual lives parallel the rapid changes occurring in technology, culture, economics, and politics in societies around the world.

Millennials have been a driving force behind large and small changes across the full spectrum of life. They have built their own seats, created spaces for themselves at the tables of influence, and claimed their places as equal stakeholders in the ongoing project of human civilization. They have a lot to say, and we made time to listen.

Class of Hope and Change is a two-year documentary focused on telling our own stories in our words. This book is rooted in the timeless tradition of oral history; focusing on the dreams, struggles, ideas, and stories of everyday millennials who bring a variety of life experiences and cultural perspectives to discussions about a wide range of timely and timeless subjects.

This book exists because people did not wait until they became famous or advanced in age to document their lives and share what they’ve seen, heard, and learned so far. They didn’t wait until we received accolades and awards for their talents. Our lives matter now. We bring our truths to the potluck of human experience and look forward to you joining us!
