360 Civic Learning

Only 50% of eligible voters between the ages of 18 and 29 turned out to vote in the 2016 presidential election. Here’s another jaw-dropping statistic: Young people of color vote at about two-thirds the rate of their white counterparts. More often than not, young people who aren’t participating voters come from underserved, low-income, and immigrant communities. How can we better prepare them for such a fundamental form of civic participation? Generation Citizen has a new report that investigates studies of the activities and practices in communities that effectively drive civic engagement among young people from historically marginalized communities, in order to determine and highlight common qualities.
