[Virtual] Civic Engagement for Young Leaders

Keeping Momentum at the Local Level

Tuesday, April 20, 2021
2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

event affiliation:


The 2020 presidential election drew record-breaking numbers of people to the polls and young adults were no exception. The numbers show around 55% of eligible voters aged 18-29 cast a ballot, compared to about 44% in 2016. Now that the presidential election has passed, it’s important that young leaders continue this momentum by identifying ways to stay civically engaged at the local level and in their daily lives.

Join the Young Professionals Council for a discussion with City and civic leaders on why voting and staying informed locally can be so crucial in a city like Philadelphia, including the impact on transportation, public health, employment, small business growth, and more. And get everyday tips on how to boost your civic engagement, like attending your neighborhood town hall, writing to local officials, or volunteering at a nearby nonprofit.
