Civic Engagement

2011

Shana’s Blueprint for Social Justice concentrates on her belief that all people should not only be able to participate in their government, but also understand the importance of public matters and civic engagement. Shana plans to implement her voter education efforts in local Urbana-Champaign public schools, and continuing her work with voter registration drives in the larger Urbana-Champaign community. Partnering with local schools, the Illinois Student Senate, Campaign County Democrats and Republicans and several other organizations, Shana hopes to greatly increase the number of people who understand the importance of voting as well as the number of people who get out to the polls.
