Youth—including those well below voting age—have been at the forefront of some of the most pivotal movements in U.S. history, and our democracy needs your voice and influence now more than ever! Join us for the Engage Memphis campaign, a city-wide voter initiative created and led by students, to explore:
THE HISTORY OF VOTING RIGHTS IN AMERICA ◆ ADVOCACY FOR YOUTH ISSUES ◆ TACTICS AND STRATEGY FOR AGENTS OF CHANGE ◆ USING YOUR SPHERES OF INFLUENCE TO ENGAGE & RE-ENGAGE ADULT VOTERS ◆ AND MUCH MORE
Featuring keynote speaker Charles Mauldin, who, as the 17-year-old chair of the Lowndes County Alabama Youth League, helped lead the 1965 voting rights march from Selma to Montgomery.
This event is free and open grades 9-12. Lunch will be provided.
