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.

Ashton Nichols wants the next president to protect the LGBTQ community from discrimination by promoting better education and firmer anti-discrimination laws.
