LYO president urges expanded roles for youth and young adults

Faison asks for 10 percent representation at next assembly

Nicolette Faison, 17, newly elected president of the Lutheran Youth Organization (see "Shaped by 'Jesus, Justice, Jazz'"), encourages the assembly to adopt constitutional amendments providing for expanded roles for youth and young adults throughout the ELCA.

Voting members passed (714-207) the two amendments that state this goal, following considerable discussion.
