Millennial-Centric Political Group to Hold Social Security Reform Event in Clarendon

claim-our-future-ad-photo-via-generation-opportunity-instituteA political organization “focused on educating young Americans on the benefits of a free society” is scheduled to educate young Arlington residents about the apparent inefficiency of Social Security during a free event in Clarendon tonight.

The informational session will take place at Clarendon Grill (1101 N Highland Street) this evening at 5 p.m., according to an event page.

During the event, members with Generation Opportunity Institute — the group behind this year’s “State of the Millennial Report” — will share why the Social Security program is stuck in the past:

Join our Virginia Team to learn more about how we’re banding together to Claim Our Future. Young Americans know we are not going to benefit from Social Security.  Our generation is paying the government to address a problem we’ve already solved.  Millennials are saving for retirement 13 years earlier than previous generations, saving more, and have specific savings goals. We, not government, should be in control of our money, our savings, our retirement, and our financial futures.  Social Security is outdated, going bankrupt, and doesn’t work for the 21st century.

The event will also include complimentary appetizers despite the group’s disdain for “free stuff.”
