Philadelphia City Councilman Wilson Goode, Jr., posts
on Young Philly Politics to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and to emphasize the need for young people to be engaged with all levels of politics.
The issue now becomes whether this generation can change it quality of life and remain removed from the political process. For too many, the right to vote still doesn't give them a reason to vote.
Politically engaged folks need to help the young people around them recognize that political events and issues have repercussions in all parts of their daily lives. Get involved!
