As youths who are passionate about politics, our goal is to use our influence for positivity and progression. We plan to engage high schoolers in political activism and provide a place where young people can go if they want to learn how to make a progressive difference. Through social media, we want to start conversations about important political issues and inform teenagers on the current political rundown. Explore our website to learn more about us and find ways that you can get involved.
