BIO

Adi Sathi is a graduate student in the University of Michigan School of Social Work. In 2013, he was elected to serve as the executive director of the Association of Big Ten Students, an organization that represents over 540,000 students from the 14 schools in the Big Ten conference and serves as a voice for them in Washington, D.C. Sathi was also elected as one of the youngest members of Michigan’s 11th Congressional District Republican Committee, helping Republican candidates get elected to office within the district.

 

 

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or another capacity?

I believe that it is important for right-of-center youth to become involved at this point in time because they are the future of conservative politics. It is tough to be a student or a young professional who believes in conservative policy, because so many politically active youth are dominated by Democrats. Many times, right-of-center youth feel as if their voice is outnumbered and unheard. With an increase in the number of those involved, the conservative voice will become a more powerful one.

 

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

Elected officials and others in positions of leadership have to spend more time interacting with the Millennial generation. By increasing the Republican presence on college campuses and increasing social media outreach, the youth population will become more engaged with the conservative identity. Many times, conservative elected officials will write off the youth population with the assumption that Millennials are not part of an active electoral base. This is the wrong approach to getting more young people involved in the right-of-center movement. Youth engagement should be a priority to the Republican Party at the local, state, and national levels.

 

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

I would like to see the conservative movement become more grassroots-oriented. I want to see an increase in the number of young people involved with political campaigns. I also want to see more students on college campuses feeling comfortable discussing their support for conservative policy, because of the support base that they have created for one another. In 10 years, I believe that the Millennials will be the leaders, entrepreneurs, and elected officials of our communities. Therefore it is important for us to create mentorship programs to help the aspiring leaders of tomorrow grow and succeed.
