Plank Conversations: A Handbook of Hope You Exercise Your Right to Vote
By: Mark Clemons
Plank Conversations guides the discussion of what most of the younger generations, millennials and Gen Z, see as major issues in the way the United States is run today. They are over encumbered with student loan debt, the disasters of climate change, low minimum wage, outrageous medical expenses, and the struggles for acceptance for all, including minorities and members of the LGBTQ+ community. Mark Clemons provides insightful solutions to these issues, such as free education, national healthcare, a living minimum wage and using math and science for combating climate change and dealing with infrastructure. With his delightful sense of humor and strong arguments, Clemons makes one thing very clear: In order for change to be made, we must all get out and VOTE
