Hendrix College’s Barrett Goodwin: Keep Talking
Hendrix College senior Barrett Goodwin, a politics major from Little Rock, Arkansas, is serving as a College Debate 2016 Delegate in order to get conversations started on his own campus about key issues that resonate with younger voters.
“People aren’t always comfortable talking about politics, but everyone has an opinion that’s valuable or some unique perspective to bring to the table.”
This first-of-its-kind initiative was created by Dominican University of California, a Voter Education Partner of the Commission on Presidential Debates. College Debate 2016 will draw on technology and social media to generate discussion of issues important to students, and to bring those issues to the attention of the moderators of the Presidential debates in the fall.
