Bullying on the national stage normalizes the behavior and can cause confusion for middle and high school students who are wondering where to look for role models. This project empowers youth to set the example for themselves.

Youth Vote is dedicated to promoting youth voice and engaging young people in the democratic process. Civil discourse and respectful debate is key to that process, citizens must be able to articulate a position on issues without resorting to bullying those with different points of view or background.

Together with the students of Youth Vote, we developed a poster series that expressed their ideals and influenced their peers to embrace differences, promote inclusion and acceptance in a diverse society.
