Journey through Civics Week
March 7th-11th is Civics Week, a time where schools across New York City celebrate youth voices, empower civic engagement, and encourage NYC’s young people to register to vote.
To support this movement, we’re streaming our 2008 award winning, youth-produced film Journeys Through the Red, White & Blue all week. Blending humor, plain spoken language, civics lessons, and interviews with friends, family members, local political leaders and community activists, this engaging documentary puts a face on “the youth vote.” Journey’s was screened across the country to encourage young people to register to vote. It was also screened at the People’s Inaugural Ball to celebrate the historic election of our first Black President. You can read more about it here.
We encourage all eligible young people across NYC to register to vote. Youth can register to vote online by visiting TurboVote to fill out a quick and easy, 5 minute form.
You can watch Journeys Through the Red, White & Blue until March 13th:
