We Run This Vote Campaign

The Problem

On May 10th, 6-8pm young people from the South Bronx will represent by speaking out on the issues that matter to them most. It's not all about the delegates and what the media is portraying. We as young people of America have the right to share information with our communities. We want to tell politicians how we feel and what needs to be changed. Young people are being left out of the political process. The next president is critical to the survival of young people of color in America. So whose going to be our next president? not sure? .....all we know is that We The Youth..We Run This Vote When: May 10th from 6-8pm Where: The Point Cdc, 940 Garrison Avenue http://www.thepoint.org/ Cost: Free, Open to the Public (16 & Up) What To Expect: Raffles, Gift bags, Performances, Voter Registration cards, music and much more EVENT GOALS: • Register people to vote • Get more young people involved in the political process • Provide information about the candidates and what their stand is on the issues that matter to young people. • Bring attention to the issues young people care about.
