Civic Engagement and Democracy

Your vote is your voice.

A democracy fails to be a democracy without the act of voting. Our nation’s schools have fallen behind in civic education and young people—especially youth of color—are graduating without the knowledge they need to participate fully in our democracy.

Young people have been systematically disenfranchised for decades and we’re fighting back by educating our nation’s youngest and most diverse eligible voters about our democracy, how to fully participate, and how to get family and friends to do the same.

ACE is working to become the largest high-school-focused voter registration organization in the country to ensure the voices and values of young people are heard at the ballot box.

ACE is registering millions of first-time youth voters in the places where their voices are needed the most.
