As President Barack Obama has finished his annual State of the Union Address, the League of Young Voters and Phil Agnew of the Dream Defenders delivers the first ever State of the Youth Address, outlining the social justice priorities of millions of young voters.
For the past 4 years, #BarackTalk has been an opportunity for young people to meet online and hold real conversations about our biggest issues, from climate change to gun control,” says Biko Baker, Executive Director of the League of Young Voters. “This year, we wanted to make it clear that the Rising American Electorate is diverse, powerful, and passionate about impacting the world we live in today.”
Phillip Agnew, Executive Director of Dream Defenders, says, “The emerging face of our country has begun to fight for the world we will inherit. Our generation knows that true change is more than words and slogans. We are building towards it at every level and, in 2014, we will show our power at the polls.”Watch this inspiring video below.
