Over the summer, I worked for Zephyr Teachout’s campaign for NY attorney general. I helped campaign by making phone calls, putting up posters in front of stores and construction sites, and handing out pamphlets for her campaign. It was really difficult to get people to actually stop and listen, but making an impression on people was really satisfying. When it comes to positions like attorney general, a lot of people don’t really think about their decision so being able to inform them was really important.
On Saturday, April 29thn,I went to Washington D.C. for the Climate March with a group of fellow students. It was really empowering to see all the people who care about the environment come together for the cause. It was a really great experience to go to Washington.
