In addition to organizing the city's young people by forming theater, drum-crew, and silk-screening collectives, and organizing FMLN youth brigades doing relief work in response to the recent tropical storm disaster, Adalberto and his fellow FMLN youth across the country are actively taking to the streets in door-to-door campaigns to bring out the youth vote in the country's legislative and municipal elections in March 2012.
