Please join us on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10th as we celebrate our National and Local Peacemaker Award Recipients!

The Houston Youth Voters Conference is a summit dedicated to the empowerment of Houston
youth as it concerns four pillars of civic engagement: voter registration, voter turnout, non-
partisan dialogue, and volunteering.
This event will celebrate our right and privilege as youth to participate in our democracy and
effect change in our communities. It will feature speakers, policy discussions, and opportunities
to meet other-like minded youth. We will get registered/pledged to vote together, and come up
with actionable ways to get civically engaged as a united Houston youth front!
