Taking Action: A conversation with Next-Gen Civic Leaders

Date: Wednesday, September 30th at 11 am PDT/2 pm EDT

Description: Next-generation leaders in civic engagement are blazing a new trail for what it means to be civically engaged in 2020. From inspiring peers to vote and become poll workers to contributing to campaigns in key states, young people are reshaping this election and creating the future of democracy. Evan Malbrough, founder of The Georgia Youth Poll Worker Project, will join us to discuss his initiative which has a bold and innovative goal of recruiting 5,000 young poll workers in the state of Georgia for the presidential election. He'll be joined by Katelyn Sethi, who is working on the ground in Iowa for NextGen America to make sure that young people vote this November. Join us for a conversation with these next-gen leaders to learn more about the ways they are getting involved in this year's election. 


Date: Tuesday, October 6th at 11 am PDT/2 pm EDT

Description: There is so much at stake this election and it's imperative that young people have the knowledge and skills to make our voices heard. Join this interactive workshop to ensure you are #VoteReady. 

During this event, you will learn the three keys to being prepared for Election Day: 

  • Registration

You will leave the workshop with a personalized voter plan and tactics for how to engage your peers and community to ensure they are #VoteReady too.
