Is the follow-up to our virtual youth the town hall—a four-week series of open letters from high school students to decision-makers in their states and communities. The letters call for specific actions to address issues that arose from the town hall as top-of-mind for young people:
- addressing topics of race and racism in schools;
- opportunities to have a voice in decision-making;
- mental and emotional wellbeing; and
- access to meaningful and relevant learning opportunities.
Above all else, though, one call to action was abundantly clear: young people want decision-makers to take their ideas and experiences into consideration. Not only because it’s the right thing to do—it’s also the smart thing to do.
