Bill A5666

Call your legislator to support A5666!

Youth from the New Jersey High School Democrats, New Jersey High School Republicans, and the Young Ecosocialists of the Green Party of New Jersey have teamed up in an effort to support Assemblyman Sterley S. Stanley’s Bill A5666: a bill to permit excused absences for young people to attend civic events.

As politically engaged youth, we understand the pressure that being activists and organizers puts on students. Permitting one excused absence each school year for politically engaged students will 1.) encourage political participation 2.) support the presence of youth in political and civic settings, and 3.) create more active and motivated young leaders and voters to help solve the issues of today and tomorrow.
