Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Lower the Voting Age

Young people pay taxes, can be charged as adults for crimes and have a stake in our society. They deserve the right to vote.

Population(s) Served

Young people can fight and die in a war, but can't drink a beer? That makes no sense. Lowering the drinking age will move us away from a binge drinking culture and respect the rights of young Americans.

Population(s) Served

In the rest of the world curfews are only seen in times of national emergencies. Yet in the United States young people suffer under curfew laws year-round. It is unjust discrimination to arrest and punish young people for simply being outside.
