Democracy 2020 Youth Film Challenge Awards Screening

Featuring powerful film works by young Americans ages 15-25! Watch as America’s youth take on our democracy. This is your chance to hear their concerns, priorities, and solutions.
Winning films and awards will be announced – each announcement will be followed by a screening of the winner’s video. Special performances and guest appearances will also highlight the event.

It’s 2020, and we are in a pivotal moment in American history and politics. A moment where youth across the country can shape the future and be part of how it unfolds.

The Challenge, a national film competition organized by The Civic Life Project in partnership with JusticeAid, invites young people to create and share compelling videos about an issue which affects their lives and communities. Its objective is to bring young people together, provide a platform for their voices and ultimately create a groundbreaking movement for young Americans to get engaged in our Democracy.

Join us for this moving and powerful online film screening event in which young people will be at the forefront of sharing how their voice and vote can affect change.
