Keynote Speech at the League of Women Voters’ YVote Awards Ceremony at the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University

YVote was deeply honored to deliver closing remarks at a special evening hosted by the League of Women Voters of the Greater New Brunswick Area, booknoting powerful opening remarks given by Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker. Our remarks followed the announcement of awards for students from 18 high schools in Central New Jersey who submitted essays and produced videos. We were very impressed by the award-winning videos, which you can check out here:

YVoters Alliyah Logan, Chris-Ann Barnett, Marsela Doko, and Karla Sterrett dazzled the standing room only crowd with the power of youth voice and youth vote, and answered questions deftly afterwards.   Check out their remarks here:
