The Express Yourself Project

idea by cooliocharlie

DESCRIBE YOUR PROJECT

What is your idea and how will it increase Millennial civic engagement in your community?:

The Express Yourself Project’s goal is to turn the week prior to the Election into a celebration and reflection of our political system. Through education, inspiration, engagement, and events we will expand the civic involvement of Detroit residents through a collaborative effort with popular local businesses and a dedicated corps of millennial volunteers!

How would your idea be implemented?:

EDUCATE:
Factoids left at each social hub will be used to educate people about how government policies affect their daily lives.
INSPIRE:
Fireside Chat’s will inspire people to take action after hearing local leader’s speak about their experiences with government policies that have helped/hindered them and our shared community.
ENGAGE:
Incentives will expand the impact and engage people to take action through providing a reward for their civic involvement. Free products will be provided to under-engaged populations to further expand outreach!

Where does your project take place?:

Detroit
