Transcript: I am currently volunteering for VT Senator Bernie Sanders my political background Throughout college, I have engaged in many political activities, including campaign volunteering, canvassing, phone banking etc. This is because true politics must be achieved by regular people just talking to regular people. -My friend Paige and myself at an event for Bridges, the domestic/sexual assault support center we volunteer with “There are more ideas on earth than intellectuals imagine. And these ideas are more active, stronger, more resistant, more passionate than "politicians" think. We have to be there at the birth of ideas, the bursting outward of their force: not in books expressing them, but in events manifesting this force, in struggles carried on around ideas, for or against them. Ideas do not rule the world. But it is because the world has ideas (and because it constantly produces them) that it is not passively ruled by those who are its leaders or those who would like to teach it, once and for all, what it must think.” ― Michel Foucault “I have not found this generation to be cynical or apathetic or selfish. They are as strong and as decent as any people that I have met. And I will say this, on my way down here I stopped at Bethesda Naval, and when you talk to the young kids that are there that have just been back from Iraq and Afghanistan, you don’t have the worry about the future that you hear from so many that are not a part of this generation, but judging it from above.” -Jon Stewart Represent.Us While interning at Represent.Us, my fellow interns and I attended the Gathering of the Vibes music festival to recruit volunteers
