OLYMPIA - Whether it's donating that old sweater, taking two minutes to register to vote online, or signing up for government Twitter feeds, Secretary of State Sam Reed next week starts a statewide push to fire up Washington's youth to find just one thing that will get them more engaged in their communities.
As part of the state's fourth annual College Civics Week, Reed is joining college students to promote the agency's new effort "Find Your One Thing." The weeklong event, from April 13 to 17, will focus on getting young people on 23 campuses to take small steps toward civic engagement.
"Being a contributor in your community doesn't mean have to turn your life upside down. Even one small action can make an impact and encourage those around you," said Reed. "This week I'm partnering with young people across Washington as we start asking the question: What is one more thing I can do to make a difference in my community?"
