If those groups want to attract people from Gen Me, then they need to put in the leg work to get them.

Absolutely agree, Downtown. I dare say, however, that it's harder than ever for those groups to successfully reach out and attract younger people. We could speculate at length on the reasons: less biographical availability (i.e. overprogrammed youth), reduced attention spans, etc.

Perhaps there's also a gap in methods: for a cohort used to "organizing" or acting via social media or other looser means, on their own schedule, actually showing up to a real-life meeting, and being expected to sit there and quietly listen for two whole hours might be a big shift. As someone on the Gen X/Y line, I can definitely empathize with frustration around the "Freedom is an Endless Meeting" concept of organizing.
