Event Description

NPR's Michel Martin heads to Des Moines, Iowa to host a live storytelling event around the youth vote. In 2008, many young Iowans transformed the political landscape and proved instrumental in getting Barack Obama elected. Where does the youth vote stand now? In partnership with Iowa Public Radio and in collaboration with Drake University's School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Martin will bring together young voices from different backgrounds and political persuasions to discuss the issues they care about the most. Is politics 'over' for young people today, or are candidates finding new ways to talk to the 'hashtag generation'? Featuring a special guest performance by Canby.

In Collaboration With:

Iowa Public Radio Drake University School of Journalism and Mass Communication
