For Freedoms Lawn Sign Project

Children and teens are legally unable to vote, but their voices and opinions still matter. The For Freedoms Project allows youth to express what they want to happen in the world for the adult population to see and consider on their way to the polls. This year, we're taking For Freedoms to the virtual world. We're inviting teens to submit their beliefs and opinions for display! All submissions will be displayed online and some will be reproduced and displayed as lawn signs at various library polling locations. Educators are welcome to request a 20-40 minute Zoom classroom visit to explain the project to their students or do the work independently.

Featured last fall on 22 News WWLP, the For Freedoms Project is a national civics project that works to amplify community voices via art. Forest Park Library, in partnership with a cohort of Massachusetts Libraries, Library Initiative for Teens and Tweens, and Young Changemakers in 21st-Century Libraries, will be participating for the second year in a row to make sure youth voices are heard this election season! 

Please visit here for more details or e-mail Alex Remy at aremy@springfieldlibrary.org.

This project is recommended for ages 11-20.
