Mikva Challenge’s Robyn Lingo Executive Director, Mikva Challenge D.C.; @robyn_mikvadc, along with others, will be a guest on a special broadcast of The Kojo Nnamdi Show at 9:00 pm on this Tuesday, Nov 19, 2019.
From The Kojo Nnamdi Show: As the nation’s eyes turn to Washington for the House’s impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, we’re turning our attention to D.C. high school students. What do they make of the impeachment inquiry and the upcoming presidential election? And how do young Washingtonians on the cusp of voting age engage with politics?
Join us for a candid conversation with students, an educator and a researcher hosted by Thurgood Marshall Academy. We’ll talk with students about what civic engagement means to them — from inside the classroom to canvassing on the streets. We’ll hear their thoughts on voter issues like gun control and climate change, the upcoming presidential election, media coverage and local issues that they’re addressing in their community.
Please note: WAMU 88.5 and wamu.org will be carrying live coverage of the impeachment hearings at noon on Tuesday, November 19, 2019. Tune in for this special broadcast of The Kojo Nnamdi Show at 9:00 pm on Tuesday.
