The 2016 Presidential Election sent shock waves through the american political system, social media, and the Washington area community. Citizens (and those to young to vote) volunteered, argued on social media, and generally spurned an election season defined by nastiness and two candidates with low favorablility ratings.
Urban Debate students from around the United States chose a different approach to election day, debating issues in NAUDL's Flip the Debate series, which culminated in Washington D.C. a few days before election day.
Hosted at the Reagan Center, the finals of Flip the Debate featured two sophomores, one from the Los Angeles (LAMDL), and one from New York (NYCUDL).
Much could be said about their debate, but nothing can beat watching and listening to it yourself:
Congrats to New York on their well deserved victory.
