With only days left before the critical 2022 elections, J. Amado Araneta Foundation (JAAF), the social development arm of the Araneta Group, organizes a follow-through to its YoVote fireside chat event on the importance of elections and the youth. 

Happening at the Gateway Gallery at 2pm on 3 May 2022 (a holiday Tuesday), YoVote 2.0 will delve into the decision-making process for the upcoming May elections. Invited resource speakers are Atty. Eugene Kaw, a Professor of Law at the Ateneo de Manila University, and Dr. Clarita Carlos, a Political Science Professor from the University of the Philippines.  

Expected attendees include JAAF scholars, leadership awardees and scholars of the Gerry Roxas Foundation, and select youth from Quezon City. Other young electorates, especially first-time voters, are also invited to join the face-to-face discussion.

Admission to this event is free. Kindly use the link below for the online registration: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JxI2J8NeasbVXThXEyA5CDP_oxyd9_mXWrox4KXf7mo/edit?usp=sharing
