RICHMOND — On Saturday, February 25th, students and young Obama supporters from across the Commonwealth will gather in Richmond for Organizing for America-Virginia’s Greater Together Youth Summit. The two day summit is part of the campaign’s Greater Together Student Summit Tour, with events in key battleground states across the country. The tour will bring together senior campaign officials, community leaders, student representatives and celebrities to discuss key policy issues impacting young Americans. Attendees in Richmond will learn how to engage with voters in their local communities and hear from Governor Tim Kaine, former Congressman Tom Perriello, former US Chief Technology Officer Aneesh Chopra, and celebrities Hill Harper and Rachael Leigh Cook, as well as Obama campaign officials.

The Obama campaign’s Greater Together program is an arm of Operation Vote, whose mission is to expand the electorate and to maximize participation from crucial constituencies – including young Americans. Young Americans shattered records in 2008 with the highest youth voter turn-out in American history.   Greater Together is building on this by working across campaign departments – from digital outreach, to grassroots organizing and voter registration efforts — to target new voters and return voters, including high school, college and non-college youth and young professionals.
