We’re the team behind the ACTION.
Our team is curated from diverse backgrounds to helping the community to helping the QUEER community. From exceptional teens, to action making advocates, we run a program of amazing teammates.
We are seeking to engage our youth group to mobilize voter education and registration using a social media educational campaign created almost entirely by them. We want the youth to serve as social influencers to get out the vote in their community and across the nation.

What are we doing for Elections 2020
An Educational Social Media Campaign created by Latinx youth participants of El Centro’s Youth Leaders in Action incorporating digital personal storytelling + community at large dialogues.
Their educational social media campaign will inspire latinx/hispanic youth to register and vote incorporating digital personal storytelling + community at large dialogues. The youth participants believe that by connecting to their heritage and emotions they can have a big impact in their peers and community.
