The Common Cause Student Action Alliance helps to build the next generation of democracy leaders through advancing their advocacy skills, leadership skills, and civic education. We equip students with the tools and hands-on training they need to hold power accountable on their campus, in their community, and beyond. Participation in the Student Action Alliance expands their network of mentors and peers, and moves them up the ladder of civic engagement, leading to additional future impact in their career or as a volunteer.
My Voice, My Art, Our Cause
This summer, the My Voice, My Art, our Cause Artivism Contest encouraged youth artivists to raise their voices on democracy issues through their creativity. Each piece of art was submitted by a young artivist and reflects their perspective of the change we need to see for them to live in a country that reflects their values.
Writing for a Just World
This collection of youth essays are the ideas that will challenge leaders of today to do what needs to be done to strengthen the people’s voice in our democracy, or step aside. These are the voices ready to fill the halls of power with chants, quiet lobbying, and by running and winning office themselves. This anthology also features some of the creative pieces put together by our Artivism Contest winners!
