I look forward to being in solidarity with them, and I encourage young people to become active with them,” said Jeri Shepherd. Colorado DNC Delegate.
State Representative Mike Weissman also had this to say about the new board: "Young voters are impacted by decisions policymakers make today for longer than anyone else, but too often are not heard in policymaking deliberations.
