Students for Democracy

2015 Bezos Scholar Perry Arrasmoith and educator Trisha Liu recognized the declining voter turnout for local elections in their community of Aiea, HI and addressed this need by educating the community about the importance of engagement in major community issues by voting.

Through his Local Ideas Festival, Students for Democracy, Perry and educator Trisha Liu founded a student democracy club at Aiea High School, worked to increase voter turnout through a Voter Registration Drive, and educated students and community members about their unique roles in their community.
