Hundreds of Oakland youth successfully organized and campaigned to get the Oakland City Council to pass a resolution placing Youth Vote on the November ballot.
After a year of testifying, writing letters, drafting the legislation and securing 300 endorsements, the City Council voted unanimously to put it on the ballot. Youth Vote is now Measure QQ and if it passes, Oakland will become the 6th city in the country to allow 16 and 17 years-olds the right to vote in School Board elections!
All City Council Student Union, Oakland Kids First, Oakland Youth Advisory Commission, Justice for Oakland Students Coalition, Youth Together, Californians for Justice, AYPAL: Building API Power, and Power California.
