A terrific, young woman who grew up in our congregation has started a project to urge young adults to get out and vote. Note that the project is non-partisan and does not support a particular candidate or issue (other than the issue of reducing political apathy among young adults!).
At this website, http://www.ourtime.org (here’s a link if you’re especially lazy!), there’s a really engaging video to watch and then a request to sign a pledge to vote. It’s young people reaching out to other young people and trying to convince them to get involved in shaping the character of our society by voting. What could be bad?
So please get on your Facebook pages, or Twitter accounts or email lists or blogs (or whatever other way you communicate with the young adults in your life) and encourage them to go to this website and take the pledge to vote!
