Vote = Voice

Voice = Vote

Young people today have VERY strong thoughts and feelings about the state of our country, the impact voting can have on shaping better realities, and the role they can play.

Check out our YVote youth sharing their thoughts about voting and civic engagement in this wonderful video produced by Reel Works for  WNET’s Youth Collective

And check out this video–produced by students at the High School of Art & Design through #WeAreAll18–of YVoters from the Summer of 2018 to see our youth in action, get a feel for what we’re doing, and learn more about where we’re heading.

Or this video from our pilot summer in 2017.

Or check out this video from our YVote Youth Town Hall with elected officials in late May.
