Beau Davidson from NTD’s “The Beau Show” sits down with West Virginia Delegate Caleb Hanna at TPUSA’s America Fest 2021.

Hanna was 19 years old when he was first elected to public office in 2018—making him the youngest African-American ever elected to a state office. Hanna’s now part of an organization called ‘Run Gen Z.’ The group’s mission is to empower the next generation of conservative leaders to run for office, and help them through the process.

Hanna says generation Z needs to be involved in politics. He says so many young people don’t understand the effects that politics has on their lives.

“I try to tell everybody that I meet from the air you breathe to the foods you eat, it’s affected by a rule or regulation in some way. And they really just need to be involved,” he said.

Hanna discusses what he thinks is the biggest issue facing his generation and what can be done to solve it.
