SRL Launches #PassTheBallot: Conversations with Gen Z on #Election2020

#PasstheBallot is a digital video series produced by the PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL) on how Gen Z is preparing for one of the most consequential elections in a generation. In an effort to encourage civic participation and greater voter turnout, we turned to young voters of influence and celebrity for their thoughts on why voting matters to them.

SRL team member and first-time voter Jaylah Moore-Ross speaks with a group of young influencers on issues that matter to them in anticipation of the 2020 elections including race, gender issues, climate change, and more. Guests include Andi Mack’s Molly Jackson and Kim Possible’s Ciara Riley Wilson, among others.


This project was inspired by the New York Times’ Diary of a Song.
