Why we fight!

For decades voter turnout among young Americans has been significantly lower than older voters. But now, this generation is challenging the norm: in 2018 youth turnout was the highest ever recorded for a midterm election and in 2020 Gen Z will make up one-tenth of the 2020 electorate. Our government should be a reflection of American society, yet this is not possible if citizens fail to exercise their right to vote. Our generation has the opportunity to have a substantial impact on our democracy by becoming a generation of informed and active voters. This way, our government finds its authorship within the people and will lead to a fairer, just, transparent, and more representative American democracy.
