At their monthly chapter meeting on March 1st, President Laura Finstad outlined an ambitious year of youth rights activism. NYRA-DC has taken its first step toward lowering the voting age in the area by contacting area city councils. The chapter has also begun inquiries into establishing a Youth Center for the city. Several fundraising concerts are in the works and will be announced shortly. Between the funds from the concerts and their partnership with Youth Venture, NYRA-DC will have the resources needed for success.
