Children and Youth Speak: Your Vote Matters




With the climate crisis and the struggle against inequality, the younger generations have served as today's prophets in provoking a global reckoning of the dire situation faced. As the November 3rd elections approach, children and youth are raising their voices again with a moral urgency as they awaken us to how much is at stake. This webinar will present children and youth from ages 10 to 18 who have a message and perspective that needs to be heard before those older than them vote. Our guest panelists will include:

  • Aaron Collins Anderson, Immanuel Spring United Church of Christ in Spring, Texas
  • Elijah Chhin-Lawrence, Immanuel Spring United Church of Christ in Spring, Texas
  • Caleb DeBerry, Vote16USA
  • Isaiah Mason, Spring Glen Church in Hamden, Connecticut
  • Evie McBride, Church of Christ at Dartmouth College
  • Rishi Ranabothu, NC Interfaith Power and Light’s Youth Leaders Initiative
  • Kate Roney, National Children's Campaign

This webinar is co-hosted by the Rev. Dr. Brooks Berndt of the United Church of Christ Environmental Justice Ministry and the Rev. Michael Malcom of Alabama Interfaith Power & Light and the People's Justice Council.
