Alternative Spring Break
This program was launched this year in cooperation with Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College and Spelman College. In March, forty-three students gave up their spring break vacations and traveled to Saint Louis County Missouri for a week long voter registration and voter mobilization activity. The activities included speaking to high school students about college opportunities and registering students to vote. The Atlanta Branch intends to make this an annual program with different destinations and activities. Participating students gave glowing testimonials about their experiences and pledged continued civic engagement as students, and after graduation. The Branch received substantial press coverage of the activities including the final organizing meeting, our departure from the Atlanta University Center, arrival in Saint Louis County, neighborhood canvassing, the departing press conference and upon our return Atlanta.
