For Immediate Release "Our Children Are Showing Us'

Statement by Common Cause President Karen Hobert Flynn

Posted on March 14, 2018

Today’s outpouring of student activism is the most encouraging sign in years about the future of American democracy. Across the country, our children are showing us what really makes America great: citizens standing up and making themselves heard to change things for the better. I hope each of them builds on today’s events by registering to vote as soon they can and then staying engaged in the important work of citizenship. We would all do well to follow their example.
