Votes for Youth Rally

Julian Burton

On Friday, October 12, members of NYRA (the National Youth Rights Association) rallied in Washington, DC at Judiciary Square to demand a lower voting age and an end to voter ID laws. Founded in 1998, the National Youth Rights Association (NYRA) is America’s largest youth rights organization.

The National Youth Rights Association is dedicated to defending the civil and human rights of young people in the United States and believe certain basic rights are intrinsic parts of American citizenship and transcend age or status limits. As the world’s leading democracy, the United States should not lag behind other nations in granting first-class citizenship to its young people.
