The GenHTX Task Force works to reduce barriers to civic engagement for youth. GenHTX has focused on high school voter registration and supporting youth Get Out The Vote (GOTV) events. The Task Force has developed a website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to provide a communications platform for Harris County youth engagement.
