Power 2 the People

The Problem

As Franklin D. Roosevelt stated, “Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.” Therefore, in order for us to assume the social equality we all desire, we young and old alike have to vote. We have to come to the realization that voting is not a privilege but a contract that we all sign as American people. However, many young people don’t vote for the simple fact that we don’t think our vote counts or matters, because time and time again we witness individuals that are put in power that don’t need to be because of our irresponsibility to vote. Nevertheless, if we put together an event that showcases our voice and our beliefs through one of the biggest forms of power in young people's lives we will become that much more sanctioned and enlightened about voting. My proposal is to put a concert that showcases different forms of music that is empowering and politically conscious that young people enjoy and listen to in an area where diversity is the majority and young people are the mainstream, by doing so we give young people a voice and more motivation to vote. The event will also have voter registration booths and different booths that inform people about all the presidential candidates.The event will charge twenty dollars to get in, the money that is brought in by the concert will go towards scholarships and grants towards a school of your choice.
