Within the Congressman’s office I primarily worked on social policy (immigration, LGBTQ issues, and gun control). My largest role was within immigration where I attended briefings, researched legislation, wrote talking points (a summary), and stayed on top of the current events. Immigration was particularly an emphasis this summer with two immigration bills introduced to the House Floor that I helped research and write talking points for, as well as the policy of separating children at the border. This was the singular issue I spent the majority of my summer working on and was both moved to understand the intricacies of the polices and the rationale behind them. Within the area of LGBTQ legislation, I was responsible for contacting congressional offices and providing information about a Resolution that would recognize June as LGBTQ month that Congressman Al Green introduced this summer. This was one of my major achievements due to the fact that the same resolution was introduced last year with 37 co-sponsors, but this year we were able to obtain 100.
