In 2016, only 50% of young people voted. ATC is working to make this number higher.
Austin Teen Coalition is a teen-led think tank tackling the issue of youth voter turnout out of the greater Austin area. In our collective, we aim to stimulate and spark interest for the political process through articles, interviews, and other mediums of information.
"We believe that all of us have a duty to be active stakeholders in the American System, not just to create a better today, but to create a better tomorrow"
