Immigration, gun control, higher education – these are some of the important issues taking center stage in the 2016 presidential campaign. How these issues are decided will play a role in shaping the future of tens of millions of young Americans.

WHYY, in partnership with 900AM WURD, joined forces to present a Youth Town Hall Meeting in late September. We turned the microphones over to civically engaged teens and young adults to hear their thoughts and opinions on the issues affecting their lives.

The stars of the Youth WURDs radio talk show on 900AM WURD (seasons 1 & 2) joined an audience of young people from throughout Greater Philadelphia to weigh in on the topics important to the next generation of voters. You can see and hear the entire conversation through this link.
