First in Future: North Carolina State Senators Jay Chaudhuri and Danny Britt

Summary:  A recent survey showed that only a third of millennials consider public service an appropriate career track. A group of young NC legislators want to change that. That’s why they’ve formed the NC Future Caucus. Our guests today are two members from the caucus, Senators Jay Chaudhuri, a young Democrat from Wake County and Robeson County Republican, Danny Earl Britt. We learn about what value a caucus of young people brings to our state, and how it might represent part of the solution in getting beyond some of the state’s partisan divides.

This installment of First in Future is part of a special TV series produced in collaboration with UNC-TV, and is recorded in UNC-TV’s Studios. Taped segments will air on the North Carolina Channel. Visit for specific air dates.
