Youth Super PAC Promotes Involvement
Justin Shin, a senior at Del Norte High School, recently created his own political Super PAC. The Youth Political Awareness (YPA) PAC’s goal is to inspire more young people to get involved in government and the community. “Our short-term goals are to hold school forums for students in local high schools to hear more about the experiences of local politicians and the issues pertaining to young people,” said Justin. For one of their first public events, YPA members attended the central committee meeting for the Republican Party of San Diego County, where they shared their mission with local political leaders. Justin shared, “Overall, the members loved the idea that there would be young people engaging in the political arena.” The YPA also plans to reach out to the local Democratic Party so they can represent both sides of the political spectrum.
