Last May, I was lucky enough to join JAC at their annual Washington D.C. meeting. At that time, I was frustrated, dismayed and dejected following the 2016 election. However, those days changed my life and renewed my passion.
We arrived in DC and after a briefing by JAC staff and policy experts we immediately headed to the Hill to begin our advocacy work. I met with dozens of Members of Congress whose commitment and dedication to public service, despite the political climate, reassured me hope was not lost.
