This year was a transformative and remarkable year for the League of Young Voters. We ambitiously hit the streets knocking on more than 175,000 doors across the country to show that we were paying attention. We picked up the phone and called more than 23,000 young voters to ignite a conversation. Our youth leaders begin working at the crack of dawn and continued into the weary hours of the night trying to educate young people about the implications of not voting.
We fought with tenacity and left mainstream media outlets in utter shock as the young voters turned out in record numbers for the 2012 election. We made our voices heard loud and clear.
WE SHOWED THE WORLD WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE!
From Texas to Maine, the battles we fought, we won. We left a clear message that equality, respect, and voting rights were not a liberty that we would just hand over politely. There were many things that were accomplished by our organizer across the country in 2012. We would like to share a glimpse of what it means to do grassroots cultural organizing in low-income communities as a League organizer.
Take a look at our 2012 Spotlight Yearbook.
In 2013, we plan to on criminal justice issues, election modernization, and voter suppression. Support our cause today at YoungVoter.org/Donate
