© 2018 Safe Kids Stories

SafeKidsStories.com celebrates youth: bodies, minds, safety, action, voice. In 2018, we figured the best way to do all that was by helping kids here in Philadelphia do what American youth on the brink of adulthood are challenging each other to do everywhere: Vote. Our #VoteThatJawn initiative posted content on our site, worked with teachers and sponsored an amazing September 22, 2018 event. The goal: to help youth claim this fundamental right. As actor/activist Yara Shahidi said in her groundbreaking platform EighteenX18, this can be the generation that changes the old myth that young people won’t connect voting to their passionate activism and volunteer work.
