Democracy Debut

The Alliance for Youth Action is celebrating young people making their debut into democracy! Being an active participant in our democracy goes far beyond voting in every election. It includes talking to your local representatives, lobbying for the issues you care about, testifying on pieces of legislation, or educating your community on policies.


Young voters, many for the first time, turned out in big numbers for the midterm elections. Now it’s time to hold our elected officials accountable. From casting your ballot¬†to¬†policy making, our democracy is strongest when more people are involved.

Share Your Story
