Meet Alan of Las Vegas, NV by Johonna Veloso

Johonna Veloso writes:

Alan is a 16 year old high school student. He is the junior class president and one of the top students in his class. Alan worked in the City Attorney's office this past summer, which was his first job.

Alan is interested in politics and is very active in his community. Just this past summer, Alan and a few other high school students came up with an initiative to lower the voting age for school board elections to 16. The initiative is now receiving support from members of the Nevada legislature.

Alan loves organizing and wants to help organize in Las Vegas. Because of his work with the school board initiative, he understands the importance of organizing. Alan has agreed to help make phone calls to get the ball rolling in Las Vegas, and will reach out to his network to try to recruit more people. Alan and I will touch base next weekend so how the recruitment is going.

We’re stronger when we ACT together. Join Alan and Johonna taking action:
