Youth under 18 may not have a vote, but they're making their voices heard.
As we’ve seen in recent weeks, participating in a democracy is about much more than standing alone in a booth or mailing a piece of paper. Leaders, allies, and activists are making real change across the republic marching in the street and mobilizing online.
Some of the loudest voices for change of all kinds have come from people under age 18 working to address issues like racial justice, climate change, gun violence, and economic inequality. Listening to the voices at the intersection of these emergencies, you’ll find a common theme: The time to act is now!
We’re inviting some Bay Area youth activists to join Mindshift host Katrina Schwartz and education reporter Vanessa Rancaño for a discussion on how their generation is shaping the future that they’ll leave behind.
Co-presented with SPUR, this event is part of KQED On Common Ground, an initiative bringing people together for civil discourse and series that asks what are our shared responsibilities to the common good.
