Youth Action March
The Youth Action March is intended to turn political hopelessness into political empowerment. No matter your age, you have a tremendous ability to move your city, your state, and your country in a more inclusive and forward-looking direction - whether by engaging our government or by working with non-governmental organizations. A sixteen-year-old is just as capable of volunteering at a phone bank for hurricane disaster relief as a sixty-year-old. A twenty-year-old’s vote is worth the same as their parent’s. Anyone at any age can stand up to a bully, be it in the middle school parking lot or on the senate floor.

Our democracy works best when more people participate, and lowering the voting age is an important step to make sure young people build a habit of engagement that can last a lifetime.
