The airing of NYRA’s very first television ad, just in time to celebrate our 10th anniversary, is less than two weeks away! The advertisement, produced by NYRA of Southeast Florida and focusing on our support for lowering the voting age, will air on Washington, DC cable the week of October 20 on several major channels such as Comedy Central, MSNBC. This ad will introduce thousands of young people and others in our nation’s capital to NYRA and to our goal of lowering the voting age to 16.
The ad campaign is already generating some significant attention in the blogosphere, before the first spot has even aired, and already has over 1,500 views on YouTube. To air the ad as many times as we’d like on all the channels we’re targeting, NYRA will need an estimated $2,396. With the generous donations we’ve received from NYRA members and supporters, we’re two-thirds of the way there, but we still need your help. You can chip in to help air the ad at the NYRA website, youthrights.org, where you can donate securely via PayPal. Just click the ChipIn link at the top of any page on our website.
