The EYEJ Youth Council is back with their well-known yearly Town Hall, which has led to EYEJ being the trusted voice of Cleveland for youth voice and is known to demonstrate the urgency in core areas impacting Cleveland youth.
This year, sponsored by The George Gund Foundation and in collaboration with the EYEJ Millennial Task Force, the 2021 Town Hall will be showcasing a diverse set of young people united together to continue the message in the sense of urgency of closing the Digital Divide combined with voting power.
As we prepare to vote this November for a new Mayor of Cleveland, we must end the Digital Divide in Cleveland and empower our young advocates for change. We can do this by voting, yet voter turnout is a problem. In 2020, the voter turnout in Cleveland decreased by more than 20% with only 53% of eligible voters registered to vote.
The EYEJ Town Hall is designed to hear from the youth about their viewpoints on voting and hear from the mayoral candidates on how they will change it once elected.
