How can I come to terms with feeling powerless? I am not of voting age and I feel like I don't have a voice.
Just because you aren’t 18 doesn’t mean you are powerless when it comes to political change. Being part of a large movement can be just as effective. There are a lot of things you could do like volunteering for nonprofits like clinics or political firms (there are a ton and I’m sure anyone from the Service Learning department would be happy to help). You could go to marches, there are always some going on, and you could get some friends together and go on a Saturday. Even having open discussions with your friends and family is a good way to feel like you’re involved, staying up to date on current events will encourage those around you to also get involved.
