California Youth Voters Rally to Shut Down the Recall Election Stunt
The F*#K No to the Recall Rally aims to motivate younger voters to vote NO on the recall
Sacramento, CA – Young California voters are stepping into the fight against the recall with the F*#k No to the Recall Rally MC’d by Drag Queen and LGBTQ+ rights advocate, Lil Miss Hot Mess. The rally was planned in response to findings from a statewide youth poll conducted in partnership with Courage California, Communities for a New California, and Data for Social Good. Voter motivation and turnout will be key to the recall election; among youth voters, only 43% responded that they are interested in the recall.
The rally will focus on explaining how a recall election works and speakers will discuss what’s at stake for California families, from climate action and environmental action, workers’ rights, housing protections, COVID-19 and health justice, to criminal justice reform and voting rights. Speakers will lead with an indigenous land acknowledgment.
WHO: California youth alongside Drag Queen and LGBTQ+ rights advocate Lil Miss Hot Mess and grassroots organizations including cohosts Black Women for Wellness Action Project, Chispa, Communities for a New California Action Fund, Inland Empire United, and Courage CA. Special appearance from Assemblymember Alex Lee from the 25th assembly district, youngest and first openly bisexual state legislator, and he’s a champion on housing, homelessness, education, and climate change.
WHAT: California youth are gathering virtually to urge ‘No’ votes in the recall election to protect California families from a conservative administration
