RockTheVoteBOSTON -Building Political Power for Young People in the City of Boston
About Rock The Vote: Rock The Vote is a national grassroots organization responsible for motivating and mobilizing young people in our country to participate in every election. Our goal is to focus the power of the youth vote to create political and social change.
Rock The Vote Boston: Rock The Vote Boston is founded by Lianne Hughes. She is a 24 year old Boston native and Wheelock alumnae. The leadership of Rock The Vote Boston includes, Courtney Boston, Herb Read, Renne Omolade, Ant Thomas, Danielle Spencer, Reggie Perkins, Gabrielle Farrell and Tyrone Odom. These leaders would like to engage at least 100-150 individuals ages of 18-25 in a youth led forum. The theme of the forum is, “Building Political Power and Capital in The City of Boston.”
Why Rock The Vote in the city of Boston?
It is a historical time in the city of Boston. For two decades Boston has been under the same political leadership. It is a time for change and it is time for the young people of Boston to help shape the political agenda of our next mayor. We have been silent and we have been idle for too long; it will take systemic, direct and purposed action to positively change the educational, socio-economical and racial landscape of young people in our city.
