HUMBOLDT ? Now is the time for political activism, according to a group of local high school students who recently formed their own chapter in support of the Democratic party.
?It?s hard to speak out on issues that are so progressive in such a conservative place,? Allie Utley, a founding member of the group, said.
The Allen County High School Democrats formed June 27 to address current events, both political and social. They met Wednesday with Nancy Boyda, a former U.S. Representative now running for U.S. Senate. They plan to continue to meet with local and state politicians to address issues such as LGBTQ rights and mental health.
