This Election cycle, this year, has been different from any we’ve experienced. However, in the midst of all the chaos, emerged young people that are politically aware, that are activists for their communities, and are extremely vocal about issues that are important to them.
We invited the young women of our community to join us for our STARS CGI youth-led town hall on #EducationEquity. Fellows held an impactful dialogue with special guest, Councilwoman Adrienne Adams, and afterward derived action steps to support their concerns around education equity. Topics of discussion included costs of living, LGBTQ+ rights, representation matters, access to resources, and health care.
