NYRA is taking to the streets and high schools, this time armed with video cameras, to comprehensively document the case for lowering the voting age. NYRA earned in the past month a grant from Mobilize.org and the Sunlight Foundation for the purchase of video cameras for a youth participation project, and we intend to take full advantage of it. This project will be an opportunity for young people to make their voices heard throughout the country on camera, demonstrating through a multitude of faces, voices and young lives the need for full youth participation in our democracy. The videos will be posted both on YouTube and on the NYRA website, youthrights.org, as well as elsewhere on the internet, so this project has the potential to really get the word out.
