Impact Boston 2012 Session 1
Posted on 06/29/2012 @ 11:00 PM
Today we went to Youth Force, continuing our relationships with the teens that work there. We watched a video on the street that we would be door knocking for people to register to vote tomorrow. The movie was to show the improvements of the city. We then ate lunch together and took a train to the State House to hear a rally for allowing teens of Lowell, Massachusetts the right to vote for municipal offices at age 17 since they see still engaged in the community and the voting attendance is around 19 percent in Lowell currently. The Senators and other people spoke and preformed - it was interesting to see how engaged the teens are to see a change!!
