Live the Legacy Podcast, Third Season

Posted by Andrew Goodman Foundation on January 31, 2023

The Live The Legacy Podcast is back with its third season! Our podcast explores the rich history of how young people, especially young people of color, have taken the reins to secure our democracy time and time again. In season one, we heard powerful stories from people who fought for voting rights over 50 years ago. We captured intergenerational conversations that shed light on how the fight for voting rights continues to propel young people into action today. In season two, we spoke to current voting rights activists about the landscape of our democracy and what strategies they are using to fight against the unprecedented attack on voting rights that we’ve been experiencing since the 2020 election. In season three, we will be speaking to young voters themselves! What has been motivating young people to vote in such record-breaking numbers for multiple years in a row? What inspires them to spend their time getting their peers registered to vote? We cover issues that drive them to the polls like safe access to abortion, climate change, LGBTQ issues, gender justice, and racial justice. No spoilers, but we can confidently say that the youth are going to be alright!

We’re kicking things off by talking with Alexa Hoekstra. Alexa is a third year student and Andrew Goodman Ambassador at Texas Woman’s University, majoring in Political Science with an emphasis in Law and minoring in Business Management. We discuss strategies she and her Andrew Goodman Campus Team at TWU (@uwpioneersvote) are using to get out the vote, the importance of safe access to abortion and other reproductive services, and the pros and cons of using social media to spread information about elections.
