US Mayors National Youth Summit
This summer, Christian had the opportunity to accompany Mayor Cabaldon at the US Mayors National Youth Summit. Christian took this opportunity to advocate about an issue that he cares deeply about- mental health.
"Often times youth are disregarded by adults who believe their opinion holds more weight, referring to the argument that we are still too young to know anything. However, it certainly doesn’t have to be that way, and this conference helped prove that.”
Christian used this opportunity to highlight the needs that youth are facing in his community, while also uplifting youth voice in the political arena.
"I personally believe that having a platform to speak on the issues that affect youth around the country is invaluable. It helps validate that our opinions do matter and that there is value in being politically active as a youth. "
"Youth play an important role in our community, especially in the coming years, where we will become the next foundation of society, laying down the bricks for the future ahead of us in order to make the world a better place for everyone living in it. By giving us the chance to address our concerns to the people in charge, it empowers us as a whole to be the change we want in our community. "
