Objectives

Our main objective is to educate young adults about the importance of voting and to emphasize, what we believe is, our greatest civic duty in order to stress the importance that ONE vote can make a difference. By highlighting the changes in our governmental processes and through introducing complex ideas in an accessible, user-friendly way, we impart knowledge that will help to define how young adults think about their individual voices in the scheme of our Democratic Nation. We hope to galvanize the youth to actively participate in the upcoming election via early voting. We want to energize young adults to stand up and vote for what they believe in. Our aspiration is to assist in creating a future where apathy is a distant memory of the past.
