Get out the vote: In September, UPS partnered with Atlanta Public Schools, AMB Sports and Entertainment, and the Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta to host Democracy Fest 2022 – a celebration of civic education and engagement.
Attended by over 600 local high school students, Democracy Fest aimed to inspire 11th and 12th graders to learn about the importance of voting. Attendees could also sign up to be poll workers and become volunteers in their communities.
From the grass roots: One student shared, “I hear a lot of ‘back and forth’ noise in politics today and never thought I belonged in the conversation. After today I know that my voice matters and how I can put it into action. The things happening in my city can be changed, but it all starts with voting.”
