We Count! Student Day at the Gold Dome
Georgia WAND's We Count! political empowerment campaign and Generacion Latina Inc. at Campbell High School teamed up on Wednesday, March 28, 2012 for a day at the Gold Dome. About twenty young women and men toured the capital, spoke to elected officials and community leaders. They engaged in dialogue about the issues that are important to them, and how they can become active in their communities, channeling their energies into powerful tools for social change. The students were enthusiastically engaged, asked questions, learned how to register to vote, and attended and were recognized in a committee hearing on healthcare before touring the Senate and House Chambers at the Capitol.
