Do youth have a stake in November's election?

Student debt has exceeded $1.2 trillion. One third of black men are serving time in prison, and young black men are 21 times more likely to be killed by police than whites. Republicans are attacking DACA and aiming to deport more undocumented students. At the same time, unemployment persists at eighty percent for youth of color, and voter ID laws have quelled youth voter turnout in many states. What do we say? Stand up, fight back, VOTE!
