It’s officially Civic Holiday season!
Last week, the Alliance Network celebrated National Voter Registration Day. Youth organizers in our network have dominated the voter registration game for the last ten years and we’re not slowing down yet. The Alliance Network was on the ground locally getting young people in their communities registered to vote. Check out what some Alliance Network youth organizers were up to last week. 👇🏽
