Next Week: Gen Z: The Fight for the Youth Vote
The youth vote can determine the 2020 election, yet young people are facing attacks on their right to vote. From inaccessible polling stations, to strict voter ID laws, voter purges and confusion over mail-in voting, young people across the country face unique barriers to accessing the ballot in the upcoming election. Even worse, these attacks disproportionately affect young people in communities of color and the current public health crisis poses an unprecedented challenge to getting out the youth vote.
In the lead-up to the 2020 election, the panelists will discuss how young activists, communities and organizations are leading the fight to protect the youth vote and advance youth voting rights.
