Heck Yeah! We Invented Democracy

When it comes to politics, the founders and friends of the Next Generation Initiative may have very different points of view on a lot of issues, but they all agree on one thing: Heck Yeah! We invented democracy.

This original, tongue-in-cheek get-out-and-vote message was conceived, written, directed and edited by a team of clever NextGen students. Along the way, they convinced some of their fellow Greek Americans — Bob Costas, Tina Fey, Nick Galifianakis, Arianna HuffingtonMaria Menounos, Chris Sarandon, George Stephanopoulos and Betty White — to give their time and talent, to help them remind their fellow students, and all of us, why it’s important to get involved.
