Interview with Congressman Adam Schiff
"Many High School Students aren't fully educated about the problems, effects, and solutions our government creates. Thus, at Civikids, we seek to empower and educate those who lack this knowledge about our beloved country's economics, civics, and solutions. Many of these topics include polarization, voter apathy, voter suppression, and natural citizen privileges. "
