Pennsylvania Young Americans For Biden To Host Virtual Bus Tour September 17

The Pennsylvania Young Americans will host a virtual bus tour in support of presidential candidate Joe Biden at 3 p.m. Thursday, September 17.

The online event will discuss young peoples’ work in Pennsylvania, issues important to local voters, and how to register to vote. Hosting the event will be vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ niece, Meena Harris, who has used her Phenomenal Woman Action Campaign to build support for her aunt.

The virtual bus tour will act as a town hall-style meeting, allowing students and voters to ask questions and learn more about the upcoming election.

Young Folks For Biden is part of his campaign’s initiative to gain more outreach with young people to encourage them to vote, according to an article from the Washington Post.

A poll from August found that only 25% of people from ages 18 to 39 were “very enthusiastic” about voting for Biden. The same poll showed that 61% of voters under 40 were “absolutely certain” to vote in contrast to 81% of 65 and older voters.

Those interested in attending the event can sign up online.
