Be a voice for young Daytonians and the issues that matter most to them.
The Advocacy Team promotes civic engagement and connects young Daytonians to the people and issues that are shaping the city and the region. The team’s signature event is an annual election forum featuring candidates for each year’s November election. In addition to this event, the team hosts Q&A events with local leaders and seeks out opportunities to strengthen the voice of young professionals in the community.
