SPT Forum - Promoting Youth Civic Engagement in the 2015 Federal Election

Join us on Tuesday, July 28 from 2-5 p.m. at the College Street United Church, 452 College Street, corner of College and Bathurst! (We've moved to College Street United Church in order to accommodate more people).

What? A forum to explore the barriers and opportunities to engage youth from a diversity of communities in the next federal election

When? Tuesday, July 28 from 2-5pm

Where? College Street United Church, 452 College Street (College and Bathurst)

Who? A wonderful panel -

  • Laura Anthony, Research Manager, Samara Canada
  • Likwa Nkala, Manager of Toronto East Quadrant Youth Outreach Worker Network, East Metro Youth Services
  • Arjun Sahota, Co-Chair and former Community Engagement Lead, Toronto Youth Cabinet

On October 19, Canadians will go to the polls to elect the next federal government.
Good Jobs, Post-Secondary Education, Climate Change, Health Care, Affordable Housing, Child Care, Immigration Policy, Electoral Reform – there’s a lot riding on the next federal election.
Yet young people are far less likely to cast a ballot than other voters.

What are the effective strategies to engage youth in the federal election?
How are youth working with youth to get out the vote?
What can we learn from the experiences of marginalized youth in electoral organizing?

Join us for this important discussion!
This is a free event. The venue is wheelchair-accessible. Light refreshments will be served.
