JSA Kicks Off Fight Apathy Campaign

JSA Kicks Off Fight Apathy Campaign

Tens of thousands of students will join the Fight Apathy Campaign, March 24-28, to bring discussions about real world issues into their schools. The campaign, run by JSA, is an incredible opportunity to engage students in hallways, classrooms, and cafeterias.

At a Fight Apathy event students can pick up stickers which read, “I believe in…” when they arrive at school, attend a class, or head to the cafeteria. Each student writes in a cause he or she is passionate about, anything from marriage equality to flat taxes. The stickers serve as catalysts to spark discussion about political issues throughout the day.

Going to school in an environment where keeping up with the Kardashians is more important than understanding the federal government shutdown is tough for many students. Our generation is the first to grow up surrounded by information, with access to more knowledge than we could possibly consume. The overwhelming amount of information has left us immune to its power to keep us informed and involved in real-world issues. The political involvement habits that we form as youth stay with us for the rest of our lives. In order to have more engaged citizens and voters tomorrow we need to ensure that today’s youth participate in meaningful dialogue about real-world issues.

Get involved today. Check out Fight Apathy’s Seven Steps to Success, a how-to guide to running a successful Fight Apathy event. The campaign is happy to work with you in order to make sure that you can organize an incredible event and transform your school into a hotbed of political discussion for the day. You can find out more information at fightapathy.jsa.org.
