"The Ones We've Been Waiting For" By Charlotte Alter

Book cover for "The Ones We've Been Waiting For"

A new generation is stepping up. There are now 26 millennials in Congress; a fivefold increase gained in the last midterms. They’re governing over Midwestern cities and college towns, running for city councils and serving in state legislatures. They’re acting urgently on climate change (because they’re going to live it); they care deeply about student debt (because they have it); they’re utilizing big tech but still want to regulate it (because they understand how it works).

TIME national correspondent Charlotte Alter examines how millennials have gained power—from City Hall to Congress—in order to learn what America might look like when they’re in charge, in her new book: "The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For: How a New Generation of Leaders Will Transform America."

Over the last three years, Charlotte Alter has crisscrossed the country speaking with the millennial leaders who are trying to rebuild the country from the ground up.
