Profile of a Youth Vote Advocate



Youth Encounters

At 24 years old, Erica Williams is the Director of Policy and Advocacy at Campus Progress, a project of the Center for American progress. She leads the issues and outreach team to mobilize young people on national issues like climate change, college afford ability, and the war in Iraq. As a former working college student, she is especially interested in the role of non-college student young people, including working young people and students outside of 4-year universities.
