Exciting signs from the D.C area: sixteen-year olds are conducting a campaign—Vote16DC—to lower the voting age to sixteen in the District. Four other nearby cities have already lowered the voting age to sixteen for local and School Board races. The D.C. initiative would lower it for federal elections as well. Sentiment in support of the proposition is building. If this movement is successful in D.C., can we expect to see a similar push here in San Diego?
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
