The RQI "Why Vote?" Tool: Self-Advocacy for LGBTQIA+ Youth Voters - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Hi everyone, we will get started in 1-2min
Ariela, she/her, NYC
This is Alex (they/them) representing the OutCenter of Southwest Michigan, Benton Harbor MI
Deidra Williams, (she) Wisconsin
Laura (She) NYC
Please write in the chat: which 3 services are most important to people you work with or who live in your community?
schools, housing, income/support
Medicaid, food stamps, housing
Why would you want to have a say in who is making decisions about these services?
it only seems fair to have a say in who makes the decisions on things that affect my every day life
There has to be a candidate who realizes the needs of the community and not just for a particular group of individuals
What questions do you have about voting?
None at this time
how to register, why register, how to vote, where to vote, do I need an address to vote
What did you learn by doing this process?
to allow tiem for youth to fill int he blanks ont ehri own if they can
on their own*
It may simplify the information for my participants and not seem so overwhelming
Language access if they speak a language other than English // literacy level
does disenfranchisement count?
This seems to cover it
This tool will help us with our art installation connecting values to voting for the rest of the month
it will also help us engage with young lgbtq+ youth who are disillisioned
and maybe! @printouts
Great idea! We look forward to hearing about it
Please fill out the evaluation when you can!
Ariela, that last point about people who can’t vote fits well with the “Vote for me campaign”
