First Amendment, First Vote!

The ECCSW is partnering with several organizations across Western and Central York on a new program entitled, First Amendment-First Vote!  FAFV is an inclusive, non-partisan civic engagement program designed to encourage high school girls, grades 9-12, to actively participate in the political process and begin to imagine themselves as candidates for elected office sometime in their future. The program includes educational workshops and fieldtrips. Students from across Erie County will be participating in the inaugural session at the Buffalo History Museum on  March 10 and partake in a field trip to Seneca Falls in early May.  In October, the Erie County cohort will participate in a summit with students from Central New York in historic Seneca Falls; the birthplace of the U.S.  Women’s Rights Movement.   Through participation in this civic leadership development program; students will become deeply familiar with the 1st & 19th Amendments guaranteed in the US Constitution and the role each amendment played in securing greater gender equity for women and appreciate the historical significance of Seneca Falls, NY as the Birthplace of Women’s Rights in America.
