This past evening, I had the pleasure of joining Smart Girl Politics president /co-founder Stacy Mott and fellow activists Amy Lutz and Elissa Roberson for a discussion on youth issues.
We discussed various techniques of outreach, the importance of tapping into pop culture, and stressed the need to promote family involvement in politics.
