STUDENTS 4 STUDENT VOICE
STUDENT VOICE, ELECTIONS, & ACCOUNTABILITY
With all other initiatives in mind, our primary goal is to lift the voices of youth and students, who have had far too little representation in our community government for far too long. We also believe it is the duty of the citizen to have consistent dialogues with elected officials to maintain a standard of accountability. Examples of increasing the power of student voice and accountability include examining meetings acts to empower participation of audience members in public meetings, requesting representation on public boards/committees, and organizing events to display collective opinions of students and youth. This also includes ensuring youth, and all citizens have equal access to the ballot box (free and fair elections) where citizens are encouraged in participating in our democracy.
