Amplify and Advocate Project
Youth & Educators!
Answer this question: What will you stand for?
22×20 has partnered with the Smithsonian National Museum of American History to create a flagship video series for the Amplify and Advocate Project.
The first video highlights how, for centuries, young people have advocated using elections and voting.

What is the 22×20 Youth Media-Making Toolkit?
The Youth Media-Making Toolkit is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive package that fully connects media-making with our democracy, elections and voting.
The Toolkit’s lessons and actions are designed for educators working with young people ages 13-18.
Young people often don’t feel represented in politics or news.
22×20 is a network of teens, media, cultural and educational partners amplifying and diversifying teen voice, political expression, and media creation in the lead up to the 2020 election and beyond.
Why media creation?
Media creation supports youth, building nonpartisan media literacy skills to interpret, critique, and respond to political messages as a critical step towards engagement and 22 million youth casting ballots in 2020.
