WATCH: Students weigh in on youth involvement ahead of midterm elections

Generation Z – everyone born between the years 1997 to 2012 – is the most racially and ethnically diverse American generation so far, according to the Pew Research Center. A growing number of Gen Zers are now eligible to vote, and for some, the November midterm elections will be their first chance.

Ahead of the midterms, the PBS NewsHour’s Student Reporting Labs explored the ways in which young citizens are getting politically engaged. “We the Young People: Moments of Truth,” is a digital special hosted by student reporters Tiffany Rodriguez from Philadelphia and Berto Suarez from Rockville, Maryland.
