This is the 3rd of our ADP/TDC Engage the Election 2016 webinar series powered by icitizen. There will be six total webinars between now and November 2016 — all will be open to faculty, staff, students and friends.
ADP/TDC Engage the Election 2016 Webinar on “Demystifying Youth Voting – Why Some Young People Vote and Some Don’t” | Wednesday, April 27th
CIRCLE, the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning & Engagement, focuses on young people in the United States, especially those who are marginalized or disadvantaged in political life. CIRCLE’s scholarly research informs policy and practice for healthier youth development and a better democracy. It is based at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University.
In this webinar, CIRCLE’s Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg and Abby Kiesa will present research that will help the audience learn more about youth voting trends, particularly focusing on the 2016 election, what research tells us about why young people do or don’t vote, and what barriers, if any, young voters face at the polls. The presenters will also facilitate a discussion about some promising practices on how to engage college students to get mobilized and mobilize others. Some of the practices will go outside of the college campuses, for example, by connecting college students with high schools. Audience participation is highly encouraged, both through questions and sharing ideas.
- Speaker: Kei Kawashima-Ginsberg, Director from CIRCLE and Abby Kiesa, Youth Coordinator & Researcher from CIRCLE
- When: Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 2:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. EST
