Building Civic Engagement in Urbana-Champaign

Shanas Blueprint for Social Justice concentrated 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 implemented her voter education efforts in local Urbana-Champaign public schools and continued her work with voter registration drives in the larger Urbana-Champaign community. She partnering with local schools, the Illinois Student Senate, Campaign County Democrats and Republicans and several other organizations, Shana hoped to greatly increase the number of people who understand the importance of voting as well as the number of people who went out to the polls.
