Here’s an inspiring story ahead of Election Day. I recently talked with several students at Cuyahoga Community College about what they’re doing to get their fellow students more civically engaged. 

Their work includes creating some highly produced, fun videos for social media as well as talking directly to their fellow students about things such as making voting plans. It’s all important work. 

“When we’re having these conversations, we’re empowering people in our community to be better, to make their own choices and feel empowered in those choices,” Sylvia Snow-Rackley, a second-year student at Tri-C, told me. 

Check out the story (and one of those videos!) below.

Happy reading!
