Ocasio-Cortez, Crenshaw Show That Millennials Can Lead the Way in Congress

With a commitment to accessibility, approachability, and good humor, Democratic and Republican millennials are already changing Congress.

Accessibility

Ocasio-Cortez’s Instagram feed has been nothing short of an unprecedented look inside freshman orientation, and people smarter than I am have written about how this is exposing her followers and constituents to new parts of Congress.

Approachability

On the other side of the aisle, a millennial Republican is making an extra effort to reach across the aisle after a contentious election season.

Good humor

Finally, in a place as glum as Washington can be it’s also been encouraging to see Ocasio-Cortez and Crenshaw show off good senses of humor.
