  • Date: April 2023



Instructors and their students are invited to take part in an exclusive conversation with Rep. Maxwell Frost (D-FL), the youngest member of Congress and first member of Generation Z to serve. Rep. Maxwell will answer your questions and bust some myths about how Congress works; help us understand how policymaking happens (or doesn't happen); and provide his perspective on the divisions between the parties—including whether we're as divided as we think. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Casey Burgat (George Washington University) and Dr. Charlie Hunt (Boise State University), authors of the new Sage/CQ textbook Congress Explained: Representation and Lawmaking in the First Branch. The focus of this event will be on student engagement with an emerging leader in Congress; as a result, we sincerely hope instructors will invite their students not only to watch the event live, but to submit their questions that the moderators can pose to Rep. Frost.
