Did you know that only 46 percent of voters ages 18 to 24 say they are “absolutely certain” they will vote in the 2012 election?

We invite you to take part in an interactive panel discussion with community leaders as they share their perspectives on the importance of voting, mobilizing, and the power communities have in the electoral process.

Panelists:

  • Rebecca Reynolds, Chicago Votes
  • Oscar Chacon, NALACC
  • Claudia Cortez, ICIRR & Mujeres Latinas en Accion
  • Atanacio “Nacho” Gonzalez, Community Development Consultant
  • Alma Zamudio, UIC student & LVEJO
