Announcing the Empower Coalition of youth activists and allies!
Youth Empower is so excited to announce the launch of the Empower Coalition!
The Empower Coalition aims to empower youth to register and turn out to vote in the Midterm Elections in numbers too great to ignore. But that’s just the beginning: We’re coming together to advocate for legislation at the local, statewide, and national level that will create positive change for youth.
60 organizations and youth groups, including students from Parkland and the National School Walkout, as well as organizations like Planned Parenthood, Rock The Vote, Do Something,MoveOn, National Education Association, American Federation of Teachers and United We Dream, have joined us and made a commitment to support young people organizing to bring their #PowerToThePolls!
See the full list of organizations that have signed on to join the Empower Coalition here.
Young people are stepping into our power like never before. From gun violence prevention to immigrant and LGBTQ protections, youth are demanding the space to make our voices heard. We are fired up and we know that the best way to wield our power is at the polls.
We hope you will support us all the way to the ballot box and beyond!

“Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers.
Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. Justpeace.org explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society.
Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears.
Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi
SheVille.org provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
