How is this for female leadership? Madison Kimrey, just 12 years old and founder of NC Youth Rocks, gave a rousing speech at a recent NAACP event, taking on Governor Pat McCrory, and the state’s recent highly restrictive Voter I.D. laws.
She raises huge concerns about the elimination of the state’s pre-registration for 16 and 17-year-olds through schools and the state’s DMV that enables them to automatically be added to the voting rolls when they turn 18.
She asked to talk to Gov. McCrory, but he refused to meet with her, calling her “ridiculous” and a “liberal prop.”
Her response: “I am not a prop. I am part of a new generation of suffragettes.”
Hear her speak. What an amazing young woman!
