Get Involved

​Want to help support our mission to amplify youth voice and youth vote in Philadelphia and beyond?

 

Here are a few ways to get started:

  1. Help move great voting images and info into more young people’s social! Follow #VoteThatJawn on IG, Twitter, FB, and share, share, share! Participate in our IG and TikTok mini-campaigns (like this one) with your friends. @VoteThatJawn

  2. DIY! Use online tools, created by youth for youth to:

    • Run your own socially-distanced voter registration drive.

    • Write a non-partisan blog about voting or voting issues. Interview activists, regular people, election officials, educators, scientists. Non-partisan doesn’t mean non-passionate! The Climate Justice issue by a youth leader shows that.

    • Use this video to make beautiful images to enliven and humanize young voters—or use your own art talents to make your own “Picture Young Voters.” What better way to reward a newly registered youth?

  3. Grab your mask and come on out to a scheduled voter registration drive with our amazing partners at My School Votes and Philly Youth Votes. Meet friends; save the World!

  4. Take #VoteThatJawn to school! We’re inviting educators to participate:

    • A Pop-Up Art Contest: Deadline 9/23. Fresh Artists is challenging you and your children and students to the Junior Jawn Logo challenge. K-12! Too young to vote doesn’t mean too young to enter.

    • “Storm: Walt Whitman’s Election Day—and Ours,” 17 September: Kelly Writers House hosts Philadelphia Youth Poets Laureates who will respond with their own poetry and song to Walt Whitman’s poem “Election Day: November 1884." With our free online curriculum guide, you and your class can, too! Then post online and tag @VoteThatJawn to see your poem on our social.

    • “the still, small voice,” 30 October American Philosophical  Society hosts the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society’s program of music inspired by Whitman’s poem. Composer Kenji Bunch’s work will be performed for the first time ever by Harlem Quartet and Catalyst Quartet—live and streamed. Contact Erik Petersons, Education & Outreach Director epetersons@pcmsconcerts.org.

    • A Young Journalist’s Guide to Interview-Based Writing:" Read, study, write your own non-partisan blog—and submit to editor@VoteThatJawn.com!

  5. Help #VoteThatJawn help Philly to recruit youth poll workers!

  6. Share our Registration videosin English and Spanish!

  7. We’ve saved the easiest for last: Just say it! Video yourself saying “VoteThatJawn” on your phone. Post and tag us @VoteThatJawn. We’re looking to feature 100 new faces on our VoteThatjawn.com banner and on our new YouTube channel, VoteThatJawn Philly!
