Dariel is 17 years old based out of Orlando, Florida. When he is not busy supporting the great work that Civics Unplugged puts together, he builds his own campaign. In 2020, he began a campaign called "Students for Open Primaries" to help garner young vote support for Open Primaries in Florida. Dariel served on the Founding Steering Committee, and is currently serving his second term.
In service of the Civics 2030 Campaign, I pledge to...
develop new strategies for the spreading high quality civic education in America;
spearhead Civics Unplugged's social media strategy;
draft resolutions or other informational documents for the benefit of the Civics 2030 community;
share the mission of Civics 2030 with my elected officials and with my connections locally in Orlando, Florida.
I have joined the Civics 2030 Campaign because...
I envision a government that works much better than how it does today, and the path to build a better government starts with training more informed and capable leaders.
To me, a flourishing democracy is one...
where emerging generations are included in decision making,
where leaders value the input of those with expertise, and
where all citizens play an active role in shaping their government.
To me, a flourishing community is one...
where all members have an important job to do, where all members share some key common values, and
where everyone commits to finding ways to work productively together.
In my development as a Civic Superhero, I strive to embody...
Joy: To make sure that I am happy with what I am doing, or satisfied.
Dedication: To remain on task and committed to the mission, regardless of my day-to-day mood.
Humility: To admit when I am wrong
Respect: To respect others opinions and to take them into account when looking or facing tough decisions
Grit: To do whatever it takes, even if it means working overtime or accommodating in certain situations.
