The Source Magazine will be working with the Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council and their “Hip-Hop POWER POLL” initiative to cover all the work of your Elected Officials on a City, State and National level.  It is important for the public to get to know their elected officials and the important work they do to address the needs of their community.  Young citizens need to know that they have a VOICE in government and that through the Source Magazine and the Hip-Hop Summit Youth Council they will be able to play an active role towards working with Elected Officials to empower their community and address its needs.

We would like to congratulate the Speaker, the New Leaders of the New York City Council and the Council Member winners from the November election and we wish you all the best.
