The Letters to the Next President 2.0 initiative allows teenagers, ages 13 – 18, to share their opinions and make criticisms known to the potential leaders of our nation. Created by teachers, it offers students a fun exercise and a way to discuss issues they care about. The website’s database contains thousands of “letters” — in text, video, audio, and image formats — on topics ranging from abortion and gay rights to sports in colleges and police brutality.
Submissions are taken through Election Day: Tuesday, November 8. After the election, the site will remain open, throughout the fall until the inauguration of the next president, for people to read and share the collected letters.
Letters to the Next President 2.0 is hosted by The National Writing Project, and northern California’s NPR station, KQED. For more information, you can visit the program’s website, or find them on Facebook or Twitter.
