From time to time, we at MYD like to share events put on by other organizations throughout the city. We know we aren’t the only ones who can throw a huge party.
Youth involvement in politics doesn’t just mean lobbying our elected officials and starting grassroots movements. It means becoming elected officials! Town Council may not seem like the biggest most important race to some of you, but future leaders like Stephanie need to start local and grow from there. We started local with the Open Seat Project, putting about 80 MYDers on the ballot.
