About Yellowhammer Youth

Yellowhammer Youth is a digital space for young people in the state of Alabama to share their stories and experiences through opinion pieces. Our staff of students from across the state believe it is important, now more than ever, to showcase the youth perspective here. That's why we also have a feature for any young person to submit their own opinion piece. Our youth write about varying topics from all political and socioeconomic backgrounds. A lot of Alabama lawmakers want to ignore our voices, but sadly those days are over. Welcome to Yellowhammer Youth.
