1875 - Vasquez lieutenant Clodoveo Chavez reportedly killed by bounty hunters in Arizona Territory [story]
Clodoveo Chavez story


Student Reporting Labs, a journalism education program of WETA and the PBS NewsHour, will premiere We the Young People: Moments of Truth, a new half-hour special focused on the 2022 U.S. midterm elections on Tuesday, Nov. 1 at 8 p.m. eastern standard time — one week before election day. Effie Gross, a senior at West Ranch High School, will appear in the upcoming special.

Hosted by SRL teen reporters Tiffany Rodriguez of Philadelphia, PA. and Berto Suarez of Rockville, MD, We the Young People: Moments of Truth will showcase the issues that matter to young people, debut voting explainers, cover the campaign to expand the voting age to 16, and uncover misinformation.

“As Gen Z begins to be represented in the U.S. Congress for the first time, Student Reporting Labs is excited to cover the issues that matter to young people all over the country,” said SRL executive director Leah Clapman. “SRL continues to be at the frontlines, covering the changes young people are making in pockets all across the nation.”

An estimated 8 million young people aged 18-19 will be newly eligible to vote in the 2022 U.S. midterms. In total, 32 million members of Gen Z (ages 18-25) will represent a voting bloc large enough to potentially shape the outcomes of elections.

Viewers are encouraged to RSVP in advance of the premiere, which will take place on PBS NewsHour’s YouTube channel. WORLD Channel will broadcast an encore presentation on the eve of the midterm elections at 9pm ET on Monday, November 7.

The program was made possible with support from the Google News Initiative.
