Carolina <Speech_Male> what are the candidates <Speech_Male> doing to <Speech_Male> try to reach out to the <Speech_Male> Latino voters across <Speech_Male> the state <SpeakerChange> and are <Speech_Male> they doing enough? So <Speech_Male> vitamin <Speech_Female> and trump have just <Speech_Female> released some <Speech_Female> Spanish language ads <Speech_Female> in battleground <Speech_Female> states <Speech_Female> especially in North <Speech_Female> Carolina where <Speech_Female> let's you know voters <Speech_Female> make up four point <Speech_Female> four percent <SpeakerChange> of registered <Speech_Female> voters in the state. <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> Almost choke on. <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> The power <Speech_Female> when the Cameras <Speech_Female> Lucho Connoisseurs. <Speech_Music_Female> <Laughter> <SpeakerChange> <Laughter> Duncan missiles <Speech_Music_Female> we are better than <Speech_Female> so isn't enough Almost choke on. <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Music_Female> The power <Speech_Female> when the Cameras <Speech_Female> Lucho Connoisseurs. <Speech_Music_Female> <Laughter> <SpeakerChange> <Laughter> Duncan missiles <Speech_Music_Female> we are better than <Speech_Female> so isn't enough <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I'm not really sure <Speech_Female> it's kind of <Speech_Female> like, oh. <Speech_Female> Hey, we forgot <Speech_Female> about these people. <Speech_Female> Let's hurry up and get an ad <Speech_Female> out in their language, <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> we need to <Speech_Female> get them before this <Speech_Male> final sprint <SpeakerChange> to the <Speech_Male> finish line. <Speech_Male> Also have to <Speech_Male> ask about voter <Speech_Male> suppression Danny <Speech_Male> Latino voters <Speech_Male> have historically been <Speech_Male> the victims of voter suppression <Speech_Male> around the country. <Speech_Male> Are <SpeakerChange> you seeing signs <Speech_Male> of that in Florida? <Speech_Male> So we <Speech_Male> actually haven't seen too <Speech_Male> much of this in <Speech_Male> Florida in terms <Speech_Male> of long lines <Speech_Male> and new voter ID <Speech_Male> laws and things of <Speech_Male> that of that sort <Speech_Male> were one of the very <Speech_Male> few states that are <Speech_Male> not an open carry <Speech_Male> state.

"Back in June. Pink was there. To, seen that people were being hurt and not the ones inciting violence that will forever stay with me for eighteen year old pink. There's been a lot on the line this election cycle like the issue of police and prison reform gunman abolitionists first, and foremost a police imprison abolitionist. This hits close to Home Pink? Stat was present for part of her childhood pink's. Mother Quantity Fernandez says his absence took a toll on their family. I was definitely a hard time for me but I had no choice. My husband's incarceration really opened my eyes to how the justice system has fallen short earlier in the year. When I first met pink, they were excited to vote for Senator Bernie Sanders but even he didn't speak to pink's pressing issue. Getting bread of the presence stem and neither do the current presidential candidates being so close to November third pink still can't decide if they will vote pink and their best friend ties, Mata. WHO's the Nicaraguan American talk a lot about who will earn their vote Eighteen and also a first time voter We've had a lot of conversations are on fight on and like what it would mean to endorsed that ticket. To give the Democratic Party another vote even as they so adamantly opposed left and leftist policies pink taste met in high school tie says pink has always been the political leader in their group of friends. Because, of like all of my political awakenings and realizations like they have always either been there or like been one step ahead of me and like have waited for me to catch up so I think the really special about our frontal. Lobe, pink understand that. Florida. Is a battleground state. This places an added pressure to vote not only as pink thinking about police reform and the justice system there also thinking of other issues around them too many people have to starve have to be homeless have to struggle to just get by have to just survive have. To live paycheck to paycheck for the one percent to thrive Pinkas struggling to find a solution within the country's current political parties. One possible answer pink says is Communism I covered we the only communist in my family but here's the thing Mike Cuban family came here for a better life to escape whatever they say that they were facing on the island to still struggle here pinks family fled Guba during Fidel Castro's regime. So when PINK BRINGS UP COMMUNISM TO THEIR MOM commanders, there's some tension I don't believe in the Communist, party I trust her stance in socialism. I'm not saying that like it but you know she has experience where she was treated fairly or bad just because she didn't have an iphone or the latest pair of Jordan's you see pink dreams of equality, a nation where resources are shared and distributed equally to all people. The current presidential candidates don't fit with pinks beliefs, and our last conversation pink was still undecided I. Know that many leftist will be voting. For Biden and have made that like public knowledge that is still something that I am struggling to decide on because in good conscience, I can't vote for him but I know that despite everything I don't WanNa see trump in office for the next four years the clock is ticking but if they do decide to vote pink promise, I would be the first to know for the world I'm Alejandro Martinez in Dallas. Undecided up to voting day, we'll be sure to follow up with pink next Tuesday. Climate Change and environmental issues have become increasingly important for many voters especially Democrats and. Especially, Young Latinos we're going to dive into that more with Telemundo Vanessa oak she leaves the environmental. Investigative, unit for the network and is a veteran of the beat. Thanks for being here Vanessa. A climate change has not been an important voting issue for most voters of color in the US although I should add, it has not been a high ranking issue for Americans overall very recently, polls are showing a recent shift in attitudes toward climate, change. Latinos why do you think that is definitely beef? is going to be very, very important for Latinos. Half of our Latino community leaving the twenty five most polluted cities in the country a couple of months ago we did a story about our Dane Bucks off a asthma in the Latino population and we interview several families. He's on wanting Nevada Wanted York I'm basically what they were telling us is that their children all suffer from asthma and they didn't know why they moved to this country they were healthy and settling they started galloping symptoms of. And apparently what they found that they live close to places with toxic pollution. So many Indochino community lease close to these neighborhoods or in these neighborhoods that have bad quality of our. So our children are forty percent more likely to suffer from asthma and being exposed to these type of respiratory illnesses. We're hearing a lot about migration triggered by climate change just looking at the past few years across the Caribbean and Latin America you can. You can probably point to numerous examples of that Vanessa. What are some of the most impactful events that Latinos reflecting on his head to the polls? Well, these issues that he studied. For. US mean when you when you think about Maria, we sold that almost half a million people moved to Orlando from. Puerto. Rico because stating half a job because they lost their homes in what regard eight, thousand, your Austin but a couple of months ago we do the story of our climate migration specifically and we focus on central. And and you might remember the migrant car bouts that were coming into the country last year, and what we found out is they have been suffering from great drought in this area specifically. So I if you think about it, their families, they leave because of the crops that they planned and if they use everything one year. Okay. So a lot but the next year they kinda crops again, but if they lose everything. For a second year, they don't have anything to eat I, mean their livelihood..

"Last night's democratic debate was fantastic. Not because any particular candidate won or lost but because the candidates took the gloves off and went after each other in the process we the people learn something Senator Elizabeth. Warren showed us. Her fighting spirit is back as she went after Michael Bloomberg on his nondisclosure agreements and past coarse language about women. The former New York mayor reminded us that debating is not his forte as Senator Bernie Sanders and former vice president Joe Biden went after him on. Stop and Frisk. The mega billionaire Mr Bloomberg appearing in his first presidential debate and Senator Sanders A self-described democratic socialist brought to life the class warfare afoot in the Democratic Party. And we learned that Senator Amy Klobuchar and former Mayor Pete Buddha judge to mid Westerners who scored well in Iowa and New Hampshire. Don't like each other much by attacking each other. They only helped Mr Sanders. The Democratic Front runner grilling candidates on their pasts including financial and medical records and surfacing differences in thought or what political debates are all about and a service to voters debates are not exercises in finding common ground. One of the six people on stage in Las Vegas will go up against president. Donald Trump in the fall and whoever that is will face. The Battle of a lifetime. Wednesday night was just a warm up now to our five stories which explore the rising political influence of American Latinos electoral disillusionment in Iran and life in an increasingly overcrowded refugee camp our first story the first primary contests a majority minority state. Saturday's caucuses in Nevada could also offer clues about the role. Latino voters will play in the fall. Democrats are working hard to organize knowing high. Latino turnout will be necessary to beat. President trump this year for the first time ever Latinos are expected to become the largest racial or ethnic minority eligible to vote in presidential election. How many of them will do so. And whether they will tip things one way or the other remains unknown but Saturday's caucus and Nevada where Latinos make up. Nearly a third of the population will provide some early clues Bernie Sanders campaign started targeting the Latino communities in Nevada last June. In recent weeks the senator from Vermont has been outspending all but billionaire. Tom Steyer in Spanish language. Advertising here experts say Senator Sanders grassroots. Organizing helps explain why the self-proclaimed democratic socialist is leading among likely Democratic voters in Nevada. And the nation.

Still he's struggled to win support among older voters. Anybody but Bernie says one spirited octogenarian exiting a town hall sponsored by the For United Latin American citizens.

You know we've been making the connections between prop one eighty seven the nineteen ninety-four election. What's happening in two thousand eight hundred twenty we talk about what happened with immigration and twenty? S- I mean going you. It just begins to feel not best side via okay but final thoughts. We're GONNA start with you like what are you thinking about in terms of the twenty twenty show in terms of the connection to immigration or even what's happening in terms of impeachment. What's kind of on your mind regarding twenty twenty hopeful or this has throw so? I think you're I think you're titles appropriate for the segment. Perfect perfect title thank you. I'm very apprehensive. I I really don't I don't know that I am hopeful I think there's just so so much out there right now with with the impeachment with everything else that comes out daily that my fear is that people get distracted that they lose focus. I mean. We'll yeah people recently. Be talking about kids in cages. The silom seekers like everything gets put on the backburner so it does worry me a little bit that you know people are GonNa lose sight or there's going to be. Ah a real real concerted attempt to to dissuade people to distract people to not let them pay attention. What's affecting our community so I'm a little worried but I've seen all these amazing people develop in the last couple of years so I see their activism. I see them joining campaigns. I know quite a few. My my students are out. You know they're working for Warren or for Castro these other folks so it gives me hope in that sense like you know. There's a lot of a lot of young people that are really active. That are getting involved. And not just you know locally there in the campaigns. They're doing the work so I guess we'll wait and see but you know I just got to believe that you know. We have seen the darkest arcus days right and this guy is bad as he is all his rhetoric and all his been the house. Like it's got it's gotta end and even if it does come to be the lesson that we've Vulnera- from from property seven is okay. You may get us now but in time in time things will change Gustavo always look at the youth in Nineteen Ninety Four. The official no one one eighty-seven campaign was terrible. I mean literally. Their argument was yet illegal. Immigration is bad but prop one eighty seven. Doesn't solve it. What kind of freaking argument was that? And so you had a lot of Democrats elected. Democrats basically not wanting to go against Dianne Feinstein being the worst of the mall who who ended up saving one eighty-seven obviously wanted to seven loss but who ended up going and giving the campaign that we all remember. Today it was the youth it was a teenager like Harar. Though like organizing the tens of thousands of students walking out of high school it was a college age. Students like Kevin Delay on the former state senator of California until you go outside the former former mayor of Los Angeles the more activists level and from there. You had a brand new California rising so same thing that we have today. Yeah of course. Now we have Democrats who are a little bit more down down than the Democrats with twenty five years ago but it's always a young people pushing us through so twenty twenty. I really don't know what's going to happen. I'm always an optimist though just because I'm I'm a student of history. You make a very shameless plug. Twenty twenty it's got to be Latino. USA's nine hundred ninety four and one eighty seven for all at the end of the United States. This is the era where we're GONNA come up like we've already had four years of this. You're already seeing e-e-e-e-no mobilization for voting for activism. You're you know you're going to slowly. Starting coming into play interesting Arizona coming into play in North Carolina in Atlanta all the time. I'm hearing more and more Latinos going into office more and more themes turning into a political based DETROI- Within the past four years elected the first ever to the city council. These things are happening. Twenty twenty nine hundred ninety four damn. I'm feeling so optimistic. The from California because you guys are always optimistic and happy because we lived through the worst of the worst. So we live through one. eighty-seven yeah but yet. When those else we always end up winning it might not be tomorrow might not be even in our generation slowly but surely we do win? Those boils Dude Gustavo.

What is that for those of us who lived through it? You just say prop one eighty seven and it's like boom so basically what we showed in the podcast is it reflects on how California went from being a purple state and now California is basically the most progressive state in the Union in California. was something of a red state or at least a purple one gave the US Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan when people need a little sunshine in their lives and a field for the optimism that fills the soul of this beautiful country than I can assure they'll find it in Orange County in one thousand nine hundred. Four California also gave us proposition one eighty-seven it was one of the harshest laws targeting getting immigrants in modern. US history and that same year. The state gave us this ad they keep coming to million illegals in California. The federal government won't stop. Stop them the border yet requires us to pay billions to take care of them. It wasn't campaign spot for governor. Pete Wilson a Republican running for reelection. That WANNA be scary. Voice Voice. Plays over grainy footage of people sprinting across the US.

Music Has Pete Wilson some promises to crack down on quote unquote them so this ballot measure it targeted illegal immigration ration- and it actually wanted to bar undocumented kids from schools and then also let's just deny public services to undocumented immigrants as well and prop one eighty-seven did pass in one thousand nine hundred four fifty nine percent to forty one percent but in the end it was never implemented After years of federal and State Court battles it finally died for good in nineteen ninety nine so that people can kind of get a sense of what this meant for you. You both live through this WHO still you're the son of Mexican immigrants head out of the your featured in the podcast series you arrive to California from Mexico undocumented when you were just two years old acute I know? Get you both of you. Were in high school. When prop one eighty seven passed in one thousand nine hundred four so you guys were? We're living through. A proposition voted on in passing. That basically was singling. You guys out because of your family and your immigration immigration status so Gustavo. Let's start with you. So what did it mean for you. Prop one eighty seven. And how does it you know how. How do you think it changed who you became if you talk to? Our generation of Latinos now nowadays like generation exit even like the older millennials in California proposition. Eighty seven changed you forever especially if you're a Mexican American I was Johnny. Come lately to this though so I didn't even know about prop one eighty seven until October of ninety four so this is a a month before the election election. I'm walking and I talk about this in our podcast. I'm walking back home from Anaheim high school which is like ninety five percent Latino out of nowhere like a truck full of wife was just start yelling at me. One eighty seven one eighty seven. And I'm like what what's the code. You're like is that a like a like seventy two man cool I'll get home and I see what it is and I'm like Oh this is ugly because my dad came to this country and trump of wwl steals from my Dad's side game at a lot of cousins. Like you just didn't think about distinctions between legal or illegal immigrants because we were all in the whole same thing together other then all of a sudden this one eighty seven just really tries to split everyone apart. Then that's when I start paying attention. I realize there's going to be a walkout at our school and I'm high. Hi and so. Almost the entire school walked out but as I talked about it I didn't walk out. I was just too afraid to do anything but again my revolution wouldn't come until years later. Arado on the other hand at the same time. I'm being clueless. Had already campaigning against one eighty-seven at his high school up went to high. All right. So hit are those take us to your radical routes right 'cause basically prop one eighty seven makes you like become the immigrant Latino statewide statewide leader that you are today make that connection. Why did this lead to your own understanding of like your political development and decision to be a leader? It was an eye opener up to that point. I really didn't think too much about myself as a as an immigrant or anything other than American. I try to be as American as I could. And you know grew up plainly ainley watching the dodgers everything that that we were told by society. We needed to be and in ninety four. I had a chance to attend the chicano Latino Youth leadership the projects and conferences Sacramento. And it was there that they informed us about this initiative and two things happen to me simultaneously I had a political and cultural weakening and it. It really was a is like a mirror being held to say no. No no this is who you are even though you try to be this other thing. And that's ultimately what the proposition represented to me. Because it was it was pointed pointing out. No No. You're not what you want to be your something different and as a result. Here's how you're going to be impacted so it really left me no space to to try to ignore it. I how to take action and considering the fact that you know I wasn't immigrant at that point. That was a permanent resident but everybody in my family had pointed out there was there was tons of people my family that were undocumented and so it was it was huge. It was something that was going to impact not just myself not just my parents but no my entire family my community and so I couldn't help help but to take action and for me. It was very simple. It was about being educated so that I could inform more of my classmates and my teachers and and you know my relatives even about what this proposition was about. And ultimately what it meant for us and the great thing for me is that I was able to speak about it and I brought my mom to the big rally. They had in October Wilbur of ninety four downtown. La and that was her political awakening. Yeah and we actually have a clip from the podcast series about that historic protests in Los Angeles Louis on October Sixteenth Nineteen ninety-four when you had our went and protested and your mom came within the protest was a cross section of angelenos notes from fifth-generation Zyuganov students today laborers who recently crossed the border. They joined with Asians and African Americans in what's being called the largest demonstration in L. A.'s. History even bigger than protests against the Vietnam and Gulf Wars Latinos stumbled study. Hit out of order. The high school student we heard from earlier is here with his mom. It's the first protests Steve ever been to and so as remarked. You hearing the chance here in the cheers here in the music The thing I I also remember to. My Mom's demeanor changed very quiet. I it's just Kinda like okay me and so when we got to city hall and in the March I mean she was just bursting with pride and just excitement. I remember after that we can tackle and we're talking about it and she's like I had no idea like I had no idea like what this was about and and how many people were going to be affected. She's like but today was really something and I remember that she's like this and I think the big thing for for both of us really was you know it. Was this wakeup call Kate. You know what you can't stand on the sidelines anymore. Because these people aw and these folks are targeting you and if you don't do anything about it it's going to continue and that really. Was this metamorphosis that that took place with me because up until at that point. I couldn't tell you that would have been an assistant principal. I wouldn't have been a leader of a nonprofit. I wouldn't I wouldn't have even really care too much about you. Know politics at all or voting. Republicans ends at this point if it wasn't for one eighty seven. Wow Yeah you know what I would agree to extent. You know what I think. A lot of our background is very conservative. You know speaking from my own personal background I think we can kind of relate to our parents are very conservative very conservative if you just looked at their values their beliefs and you kind of put them in a box. They would be Republican. But after one eighty seven that was the furthest thing from their mind is like Heck No. I don't care what I believe personally. A lot of the he Ghana's who came to California during the seventies minis and eighties it was people from central Manica. Los ranchos like you know very individualistic very against government. I was I come from Mexican hillbillies like just almost like conservative conservative and. Let's not forget in one thousand nine hundred eighty six. Ronald Reagan passed an amnesty. That help us become documentary or a lot of our family members. I believe in the the idea of amnesty for those who have put down roots into oblivion here even though some time back there they may have entered illegally with regard to the employer sanctions. This we must have that not only to ensure that we can identify edify the illegal aliens but also while some keep protesting about what it would do to employers. There is another employer that we I shouldn't be so concerned about and these are employers down through the years who've encouraged the illegal entry into this country because they then hire these is individuals and hire them starvation wages and with none of the benefits that we think are normal and natural for workers in our country and the individuals can't complain because of their illegal status. We don't think that those people should be allowed to continue operating free so we're GONNA say Reagan's Republicans they're not bad people and and then all of a sudden here comes. Pete Wilson Governor of California and his one eighty-seven and bye-bye Mexican Americans Voting Republican in at least in California.

Even come on the air, the state of the union tonight. They're talking about even the White House Kellyanne spokesperson saying that. He's gonna talk about the economy and and unity. What a shame that. He's got to talk about unity. When all the resistance is just one side. And it doesn't look like that's gonna go away. If there's another shutdown. Of course, Trump will be blamed for again Nancy gets away Scot free. And I think what a great leader she is. And it's immoral to restrict anybody from coming into this country, and here sees her constituency is what San Francisco what a what a model for all other cities righty places in the world to mimic is San Francisco with the needles in the in the streets and the human feces and life suggestion to the witch herself. Of course, she's gotta be given to many positive looks tonight. Is Nancy watch you take care of your constituency. Help San Francisco specifically, they have a problem with human feces and North Korea is saying that they want Kim Jon watch his people to generate more crap even other starving to death. Maybe you could Joe ship all your excess over there and make some money out of it. Because that's what you do. Hey, john. Let me ask you a question. What are your expectations of the president's speech tonight? And what would be the biggest disappointment? If something was omitted. I think you ought to come right? Nancy right between the eyes and Schumer because they've done nothing, but in Sultan, and here even with the government shutdown. I understand January was the best economy in thirty years. Everything that the Democrats do is sounding blocks in front of this guy, and he's still operating terrifically. We've got the best economy in the world and more people are working they're doing better the black hate him. But they have the lower lowest unemployment they've ever had Lavery. You know, it's amazing. How the only people. Do you think the night he'll us tonight announced what his plans are for funding the wall that would include maybe calling for a national emergency. I think what he ought to do is just say, it's a foregone conclusion as president of the United States. My first obligation is protect this country. If I can't protect our borders. I'm not doing my job. That's what to do and anybody at violates that. They are the ones that are definitely in the wrong. They're only doing it to generate democratic votes. This whole thing about bringing people in and get rid of orders. Sustained a Democratic Party and to destroy the Republican party, the Republicans need new leadership. I saw Kevin McCarthy our Maria Feodorovna, he is wait. Useless. Call rhino the regime. John, thanks for the call. Thanks for the suggestions. I would disagree in one aspect. I don't believe blacks hate the president. I think there are a lot of black Americans that voted for the president that respect the present. Yeah, they're gonna get like anybody else. I don't think they voted Marge numbers for the president. But I think once again, he's winning a lot of those votes. His is in the Latino community his poll poll numbers are up significantly. Like fifty one percent. So I think it's slowly. But surely when you start turning the economy around we started creating jobs for a black youth and for Latino youth, and so on and so forth when people now have hope instead of despair that is gonna win over a lot of I think he's gonna pull out all the stops to see if there's nothing to prevent him from doing so he can still call for unity and bipartisanship. And what have you he can say if that fails, here's what I'm gonna do. And because I think that's what he's base wants to hear him say. Yeah, we'll see what happens tonight at nine here on WCBS. Fred is up next in Baltimore. Fred good morning. Good morning two hundred and seventy five thousand dollars for the incoming police Commissioner, that's that's really outrageous. In fact, the mirror the school superintendent. The state's attorney porn down a tremendous amount of salary in the city. And you know that that she does salary should be reduced at least fifty percent. And they're not even doing a great job. No, that's that's very true since when have we ever held the government employees again in the private sector. You don't last very long. If you don't get results tell you that right now. Government. It's almost expected that that's very true. So I don't think wishes guy luck. But I don't think he's gonna be have any long year here in Baltimore. As long as you're going to be answerable to the mayor. Then you're really aren't going to have that kind of security.

"I mean, one of the things that groups like rock, the vote have to be more focused on and be more vocal about is the registration gap and the turnout gap that exists especially in young people. So you have across the board across the country, a huge gap between in participation between young people of color and white youth. And so certainly in areas that you mentioned Latino youth are going to be play a big part, we work with partners like voter Latino familiar Voda local groups, who you know, are on the ground. We have a partnership network that we provide resources to and work with very closely to develop things like voter guides and where we can candidate forums. And that sort of things do you think? How much of a spike you see in Latino voters young Latino, a big, spike. I mean immigration is a huge issue right now economic equity is a huge issue education as very big issue and these are on the table on the ballot right now. So one of my longtime, and let's be straight here in my concerns about rock. The vote was too reliant on on celebrities. And and I was always who cares. What Madonna says about voting and such like that? And I noticed that on national day of the day. You guys had an ad that had several celebrities on there for mostly from H B O shows. Right. And they said nothing there was just their image there. And it said because there's because the studies say that there's not much that celebrity endorsements can do, but this and this ad. It was just what seven or eight the summers. And at the end, what's the tagline hero? That says that right now, there's only one voice that needs to be heard yours what else about how that ad came together. Was that a reaction to like, you know, celebrity endorsements or bullshit type of thing or I think well, I think what's interesting, and when you think of rock the boat, you think most people think of them TV days, right? And that's all pre internet. Really? And the internet has changed everything right, including the the news industry. And so and so without also celebrity has changed, and how young people actually, interacting and view celebrities, only, and you know, I think celebrities, and heroes, and and have a place to have a role to play certainly in highlighting things and being an implementer of resources that exist. But there is certainly, you know, a big part of it is young people actually don't feel like their voices matter or that their one vote counts, and when young people want to be part of a collective, and so part of this is saying, this is your future. Right. This is your voice is actually important. It's not going to be any one of our celebrity voices that actually go there go there and make the decision. It's yours, but was a reaction to like the kind of Bush back against because he didn't have a couple of years. Ago and found out that some of the people in the ad had registered. Your. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I think young people want something real to right? I think I think that's the other thing is you can make something that's very entertaining. But you know, is entertaining, but doesn't necessarily drive impact. And so that's what we are very focused on impact. And sometimes that's not the sexiest thing, right? Sometimes it's actually Civic Center -cation, and that's actually one of the programs that we've we just launched his democracy class. This is an actual class in school. Correct. Do your credit for this class? Yeah. Semester. Okay. Yeah. History. Classes social studies cracked, right? Yeah. I mean, it can be taught anywhere. Right. So that's the beauty of it is if someone has an after school program, or if someone has a Sunday class, or whatever they wanna do they they can just download and use it and for years, but what's different about this. Yes. So democracy class was launched in twenty ten. We have completely reim- revamped. It it's the first time it's going to be taught this close to election day. So we used to teach it in March. But what we found is young people, you know, here what's going on around them, but don't necessarily have the understanding to engage in it, and they want to in so democracy..
