National Student Issues Convention brings get-out-the-vote to schools and to students nationwide with free education program
BEVERLY HILLS, CA (robinsrowe.com) 2020/09/15 – My friend Devankar, a Student Assistant at the Wayne State University Center for Peace & Conflict Studies in Detroit, is an organizer for this student political action conference.
This online convention will have students and young people from all over the country sharing their thoughts about some of the most pressing issues here in the US. You attending this would be very beneficial because it would be a safe place to just hear from others and meet people from all over!
I really need you to share this out to your network of students that you mentor at Caltech, UCLA and USC, who understand it is important to be civically engaged and socially aware.
Register ASAP! This is going to have a 1,000-person cap. Spots have been filling up!
Thanks Robin, can’t wait to see you there!
Thanks, Devankar! I will also share this with friends at Beverly Hills High School and at Theodore Roosevelt Senior High School in Los Angeles Boyle Heights. In case you don’t know, Boyle Heights is home to the LAC+USC Medical Center and the Keck School of Medicine of USC.
The convention has four stages:
- Students meet in small groups to discuss the most important items for a Student Issues Agenda.
- A plenary of all students vote on five items based upon small group reports.
- Candidates and public officials respond to the issue agenda presented by students to them.
- After the convention students on each campus mobilize to register students to vote, turn out the vote, and meet with public officials to push for solutions to the problems highlighted in the agenda.
