City Voices November 2008: Teaching Democracy

Huge numbers of young people learned about the political process first-hand in the recent election by volunteering on campaigns and even voting for the first time. In Chicago, students who are part of the Mikva Challenge worked for candidates and traveled as far as New Hampshire to get a lesson in democracy first-hand. Guests: Rich Feffer of the Mikva Challenge, Kenwood Academy student Bahati Mwitula.
