Engage: Concepts Town Hall Series Vol. 1: Vote

What is ‘ENGAGE’? 
Engage is a quarterly platform designed to bring together our community, to discuss pressing matters in society, featuring key thought leaders. A host and key guest panelists will tackle a different topic each time, with the goal of sharing their experiences, embracing each others opinions and hopefully sparking a healthy conversation. It’s about creating awareness, igniting dialogue and listening to each other… we welcome you to participate, get involved…  ENGAGE.
 
TOWN HALL VOL. 1: VOTE
Young voters are new voters, and they face unique obstacles that result in turnout numbers which are historically 20 to 30 points below older voters. This discrepancy is even greater in mid-terms, state and local elections.  As a result, our democracy continuously fails to represent the youth voice, generation after generation. They’re also the target of voter suppression efforts, especially in urban communities and with the rise of COVID-19, voter ID laws and the removal of polling sites from college campuses, young people must navigate obstacles determined to keep them from making their voices heard.
 
We’ll tackle all of this and more, as we hear from key leaders in the Boston community on the power of your vote.
