House of Dumezweni

"Age does not define knowledge."

Hi! We're the House of Dumezweni, made up of our mentor Julian, and fellows Karen, Fabiana, Christina, Emily, and Jorge. The six of us are all a part of the Under A Tree Ethical Citizens Fellowship, where we have rich and open conversations about race, religion, sexuality, politics, mental health, and more.

All six of us can't vote for the simplest reason: we are all too young. But, age does not define knowledge. We all have different passions, and real, tangible issues that affect us. Whether it be police brutality, gun control, or climate change, things seriously need to be done, and that's where you come in. We want to ask YOU -- yeah YOU! - those who can vote, to please promise to vote on our behalf. It would genuinely mean the world to us.

THANK YOU! LOVE yoU!
