Get Informed - Wednesday!!

Hey folks!

If you are a youth (12-30) and you live in Point Douglas, AYO wants YOU to know what's happening in the next election(happening October 4th/11).

We are having several events to inform and empower young people in this election and want young people to come and check it out. Tomorrow (Wednesday) night AYO's PolitiX hits Ralph Brown Community Centre @ 460 Andrews Street! GET INFORMED invites young North Enders to research and educate themselves on voting, why its important and what kind of Qs can be asked at upcoming events.
