Kids Against Trump

Nine-year-old Alexis Fridman made a petition to “Dump Trump” with her friends during recesses at Angier School in Newton. Her paper petition acquired 57 signatures, and that number grew after she created a virtual petition online. With a little help from her mother, she also created a Facebook page called Kids Against Trump. Fridman informs herself by watching the presidential debates and discussing politics with her older brother. In a persuasive writing assignment for class, Fridman wrote about why kids should be allowed to vote. Fridman has found an effective way to voice her political opinions and be heard.
