We the People Fest

Kent, OH - This multi-day festival is designed to engage youth by creating excitement about the election process through using various media forms focused on education, awareness, and entertainment.

We The People Fest will incorporate films, guest speakers, and music with representation on a local, regional, and national level.

It will be a celebration of democracy that will provide young adults an opportunity to register to vote and empower themselves with knowledge about the election process.

We The People Fest will be held from September 26th - 28th, 2008 in the newly renovated Oscar Ritchie Building at Kent State University.

The Center of Pan-African Culture is a co-host of the event.
