Parade to the Polls
The 2016 Presidential election has energized several of our students. Issues to Action, Taft's civic club organized a "Parade to the Polls" to register first time voters. Student leaders, Alaina Dixon and Uriel Hernandez led the march to the polling place at the Carl Roden Library where students stood in line to register and vote. On March 11th, Chicago saw forty new voters feel like they have a say in our public democracy. Students who registered for the first time were nervous and excited but felt comfort among the familiar faces who were there to support them.
