I am especially enthusiastic about Representation2020, a project of FairVote that advocates for women’s parity in government. Women are extremely underrepresented in both our state and federal legislatures. This is a problem because women provide perspectives on policy that men are unable to and these perspectives need to be heard. I’m interested in parity for women because I believe that since women make up more than half the country it is crucial they are given the opportunity to govern as such. I am excited to work towards parity these next couple months in order to help the voice of women be heard in our government.
