Maui Waena Intermediate School, Hawaii

Maui Waena Intermediate School, Kahului, HI

What if teenagers felt they had a voice in the future of our country? This election season, the Student Reporting Labs network of more than 100 schools across the country asked middle and high school students to talk to the next president about the issues they feel need to be addressed.

The girls of Maui Waena Intermediate School have had enough of gender inequality. They want the next president to rally global efforts for women’s rights.
