2013 D.C. Trip
CPLA and Eboni met up at 4:00am in the Little Building Lobby to start the long trek to Washington D.C. A cab, an unnecessarily bumpy plane ride, a train, and a metro ride later, we were in D.C. and off to our first appointment with the State House. We learned about crisis management in the government and had great discourse on current crises like Benghazi and the Shutdown.
The weekend held great networking–and fun–for all the entire group. We made our way to Voice of America, Finn and Partners lobbyist firm, Meet the Press, the Capitol, and general exploration of D.C. We met with alumnae and interacted with the Bird Street Civic Engagement Project.
