House Democrats Digital Portfolio

Thank you for your consideration of my application to join the House Democratic Caucus as a digital intern!

House Democrats work tirelessly to advance legislation that makes life better for all Americans — whether it’s protecting them against discrimination, fighting back against Republican efforts to block unions or addressing the climate crisis.

In today’s oversaturated media environment, we have to fight tooth and nail to make sure Americans in each Congressional district know what House Democrats are doing for them.

One of the best ways to do this is online. That’s why I was excited to learn about the opportunity to join the caucus as a digital intern this summer.

This means we have to be in control of the messaging about House Democrats that’s out there.
