Advocate Rachel Published by Forbes

Young Voices Advocate Rachel Burger was published by Forbes writing about how Millennials view President Obama:

What does this mean for the future? While Millennials still want the government to protect and serve, they are drifting away from both political parties. According to a 2012 study, almost half (45%) of Millennials are independents, whereas 33% are Democrats and 23% are Republicans. Millennials will increasingly distrust individual politicians and continue to opt for third-party candidates and “outsiders.” Perhaps, with time, they will find someone who will truly protect them.

But today, Millennials are done with Barack Obama.

Advocate Yael Published at Watchdog.org About Vermont’s Pot Laws

Young Voices Advocate Yaël Ossowski was published by Watchdog.org writing about Vermont’s pot laws:

In July of this year, Vermont lawmakers took a bold step.

They removed criminal penalties for those caught with small amounts of marijuana.

Now, 5 months later, decriminalization of pot is generally judged to be a great success in the Green Mountain State, a sentiment which could push Vermont to be the third state in the union to legalize marijuana outright.
