Call for Youth Voice in Election 2012

With the presidential debates rapidly approaching, I am reminded of how critically important it is for America's young people to raise their voices about issues that matter to them, and to take action and vote.

With the presidential debates rapidly approaching, I am reminded of how critically important it is for America's young people to raise their voices about issues that matter to them, and to take action and vote. To this end, I am issuing a call for wires on #waywire, to help elevate the youth voice and youth vote in the upcoming debates.

I believe #waywire can be a network for people everywhere to move away from partisan grandstanding toward a productive national conversation about solutions to the problems we are all facing.

I look forward to hearing about the issues that are compelling you to tune into this week's debate.

Learn more about Wires here, at #waywire or at iTunes.
