Civic Influencers is at the forefront of empowering youth in America to shape the current and future state of democracy. In this caucus, join Civic Influencers as we talk about the issues that are affecting young people in participating in our system and the specific hurdles that the data tells us Is disenfranchising a new generation of voters.
