March to the Polls: "Who's Future? Our Future!"

Written by Cara Cooper, Florida International University

Time for our generation to get off our computers and get to the polls!

Today, Florida YES Coalition students at Florida International University in Miami, Florida hosted a youth voting rally on campus and marched together to the polls. 

The march, called March for Our Future started with a large group of students gathered together in the center of campus decked out in green hard hats, Power Vote shirts, and posters. We chanted and invited others to join in the action. Then the mob marched through the campus and hit the streets for a two mile walk to the closest early voting site.

We marched to send a message to the rest of the nation that young people care about voting and care about our future. Also, we want to empower other young students to realize the enormous amount of political power that our generation holds. 

We are the ones who will be living with the outcome of Election Day on November 2nd, and we are the ones whose future is at stake. If we aren’t out there voting then we are letting someone else decide our future for us. Take action and hold your own Get Out the (Power) Vote event today.

The youth of America showed up and voted in record numbers in 2008 and it scared the heck out of the old people. Let’s show them how serious we are about the issues that are important to us and continue to show up in record numbers every single time there is an election!

Get the tools you need and get active. Your vote is your voice!

Now, if you haven’t already, shut down the computer and GO VOTE!

Having the youth get out and

Having the youth get out and vote is important, but just as important is staying informed about current events in government and calling or emailing your congress members. One major bill that will be heard today could have a big impact on the daily lives of many young people. The Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) is scheduled to be voted on today and would allow for government censorship of internet sites deemed to host and distribute copyrighted material. SOPA was written by a large group of individuals comprising of congress members, business executives, artists, and copyright litigation attorneys. I advise everybody here to read about SOPA and let your congress members know your stance on the bill over the next couple weeks while the bill will be circulating between 2nd and 3rd floor readings.
