In line with the Global Shaper Community’s 2021 Equity & Inclusion Impact Area goal of mobilizing young people and diverse populations to become more civically engaged within their communities, we know we have work to do in the United States. Here, young people are apathetic about civic engagement. Only 31% of eligible millennials voted in the U.S. midterms in 2018, and we have the lowest voter turnout of any age group in elections.
Voter Education: To host 100 Civic Dinners across the country and countless other voter education initiatives to engage new voters in the issues that matter to them.
Voter Registration: To register 1,000 new young diverse people in time (depending on deadlines in each state) for them to participate in the 2020 elections.
Voter Mobilization: For each eligible Shaper in the U.S. to vote in the 2020 elections and to get 5 new diverse young people to vote.
