Day 3. Best turnout today!
I’m in the process of setting up a five-day voter registration drive at my HS, the largest high school in Ohio, that will target Gen-Z registration for the 2022 midterms. This will be my first hosted drive ever. So excited.

This is my mother speaking after the Atlanta shootings about the anti-Asian hate crimes. She's been fighting all her life, for Americans, for AAPI youth, and for me. I wouldn't have run for office, much less at 17, if it weren't for her activism. Thanks, mom.

Paging @RepThomasHall…Paging Mr. Thomas Hall…your constituents want to hear from you. Give us a date and I’ll make it work.
Up and down the ballot, the new strategy of Ohio Republican candidates is to avoid any debate or forum where they can’t control the questions asked and open exchange of opinions on issues. It’s un-democratic and disrespectful to voters.

I attend a class at my school called “Words from the Wild”. We learn about nature, create journal entries about the outside, and we even go fishing. School districts, please consider adding this as an elective to your schools too. We need more people caring about Earth/nature.

I may be 17, but my options of getting involved aren't limited. Thanks to everyone, I have a platform to fight the good fight online. I'm also going to try to work the polls/plan for more physical events for Gen-Z involvement. I'm frustrated; quite frankly, we can do better.

You know what's crazy? It was @dawnporter's "Bobby Kennedy for President" documentary that played a huge part in inspiring my run a few months later. Still can't get over that. Art can do so much.

Voting really is a gift we shouldn't take for granted. How? By voting. People were hurt or even killed in the process to make sure that we could.

Our 5-day voter drive starts today at Ohio's largest high school. Secretary of State Frank LaRose reported that 18 races tied in 2021. Any extra vote would've overruled deciding the results by a coin flip or the drawing of a name from a hat. In short, your vote DOES matter!🗳️

Never underestimate the movement of young people: in voting rights, civil rights, and the Vietnam War protests. Today, we are fighting many of the same fronts, but also against gun violence, voter suppression, as well as for human rights.

Yesterday my mini me came on the campaign trail! She was amazing and kept us on time for every event. ❤️ proud mommy moments. And yes, I'm the only statewide single mother with teenagers running! There are 0/6 women in the state seats right now. RT for moms representation!
