PARKLAND, FL- Sixteen-year-old Parkland resident Sinan Kassim is leading the way to get youth involved in the voting process. Kassim,  Founder of the Kassim Legacy Foundation, has created the Activate the Youth Vote group, which is a nonpartisan platform advocating for voter participation this November.

Tonight, Kassim will be launching a 60-minute weekly Friday Facebook Live showcasing 15 youth leaders from around the country including representatives from Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Iowa, North Carolina, Connecticut, and Minnesota. Joining them on the panel this evening are community youth leaders Noah Fineberg, Logan Rubenstein, and Raymond Adderly.

"I want to bring awareness to the elections up and down the ballet and make sure everyone votes in every election," says Kassim. "So many of our youth are trying to get involved in issues, from the pandemic to social justice."

"I hope this motivation to vote brings us all together," summarizes Kassim.

Tonight's live stream begins at 6:30 p.m. and can be found on Facebook live or on YouTube here.
