BYP MEMO: Youth, Race, and Voter Mobilization
The Black Youth Project is back with a brand new memo, examining the mobilization of black youth as we approach the 2012 election.
A new analysis of voting data shows that mobilization works to turn out voters. But when it comes to youth, especially among young blacks, both political parties are failing to mobilize significant numbers and the historic youth turnout in 2008 may not be repeated in 2012.
The memo, entitled “Youth, Race, and Voter Mobilization,” is the third in a series entitled Democracy Remixed: Black Youth and the Future of American Politics released by the Black Youth Project
