From Club Members
I am 18 years old and am in high school. I take AP American government and politics, and I love this organization for not only helping me to understand how interest groups work, but also for providing me with information. This organization helps me to make stronger arguments in class and I am able to convince more people that the current president has abused his power, has lied, and should not win reelection. I want to thank this club for raising awareness so that its members can then go out and share that information on a grassroots level. I would like a job when I graduate college, and now that I can vote this organization helps me to make the best candidate choice to give me the best chance I have to being succesful. - Tyler Stein, Tewksbury, MA
