What if we shifted the way we talked about, thought about, and viewed teens? What if we took them and their concerns seriously? What if we stood up to other adults, especially adults in positions of power, who mock and dismiss young people’s thoughts and opinions?
We asked young people around the country to share their views on the political process and if voting was important. Even for those who aren’t 18 and therefore can’t vote, their opinions are heartfelt and contradicts the perception that young people aren’t engaged in the political process.
