Growing Democracy From The Roots Up
Oregon’s rising generation is the largest and most diverse generation in state history. Yet, while youth voting has steadily increased over the last decade, young people are still far less likely to vote than older citizens. This generation has the potential to leave a lasting, positive legacy on the state, but we are doing too little to educate them as active citizens now.
Democracy Cup is Oregon’s state-wide action civics program. It’s our effort to fill Oregon’s void of non-partisan civic training and set up our state for long-term success.
Democracy Cup is one part classroom workshop in civic leadership and one part youth voter engagement drive. It’s led by a team of Democracy Cup Fellows from around the state, rising young leaders dedicated to training our high schoolers to be active members of the statewide community.
