Description

In this article penned for the Collegian, Andrew Young urges young people to be more active citizens and voters in their local college community. He also suggests that if a college student would like to make a difference, they should sign up for Peace Corps or VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America). He says that college students have power collectively and as individuals to solve global issues. Young was a leader in the Civil Rights Movement, a member of Congress, and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, and future mayor of Atlanta. He resigned from his UN ambassadorship after it was revealed he engaged in secret discussion with the Palestine Liberation Organization.
