(FOX19) - Tim Sullivan and Labraun Colvin of Cincinnati's S.W.A.A.G.G. the Vote emphasize the importance of letting your voice be heard.

S.W.A.A.G.G., which is short for "Stand With the African American Greater Good," aims to engage, educate and encourage young people to participate in the political process.

Rather than resorting to violence, Sullivan and Colvin believe the best way to effect change is at the ballot box.
