Student Voting Rights: Why They Matter

5:30-7PM

The Hart Leadership Program will host Parkland student, Sari Kauffman, whose response to the tragic shooting of her peers at Florida’s Marjory Stoneman High School, has been to register thousands of student voters while mobilizing many more to do the important work of getting citizens to vote in dozens of counties across Florida. The event will focus on the recent history and importance of student voting and the deliberate ways students have been discouraged or outright disfranchised from voting since 2008, when North Carolina produced the biggest youth voting wave of any state in the nation.
