Brown Bag Lunch Series: Democracy Forum on the Brattleboro Youth Vote with Rio Daims
22 August, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
The Youth Vote is an amendment that will enable Brattleboro youth ages 16 and 17 to vote on town issues, serve on the local high school board, and at Representative Town Meeting. This will empower youth to be completely active members of the town where they live, work, and pay taxes, and will give them a voice in the changes that affect them.
Rio Daims lives in Brattleboro, currently goes to Brattleboro Union High School part time and is home-schooled for the rest of the time. She is the Youth Vote Coordinator at Brattleboro Common Sense. Brattleboro Common Sense (BCS) advances global issues locally, including war-and-peace, environment, civil rights and economic fairness. Recently BCS advanced legislation for renewable-source electricity that is now being implemented by the town.
