Power to the People!
Across Latin America, the past decades have seen the power elites increasingly disconnected from their people. In response, young people, led by the San Salvador Hub of Global Shapers, have created Pláticas del Pueblo: a project aimed at creating a culture of political debate among their country’s disenfranchised communities, in the hope that these grassroots focus groups will help hold the nation’s leadership accountable.
