The DC chapter of NYRA is busy at work preparing for their May 17 rally on the steps of Takoma Park, Maryland’s city hall that will launch their campaign to lower the voting age to 16 in this city. The chapter is reaching out to high schools and non-profits all through the area to gain support for this campaign. If successful Takoma Park will be the first city in the nation to lower its voting age to 16. “A victory here will provide the spark to ignite the ready fuel being laid all across the nation.” says NYRA President Alex Koroknay-Palicz. Contact NYRA-DC President Laura Finstad for more details.
