3rd Annual Student Advocacy Trip to Washington D.C.

In June, New Vision Partners took a group of six high school students of different faith backgrounds from Los Angeles and Orange County to Washington D.C. for a five-day advocacy trip. Our group had the opportunity to experience democracy in action, meet with elected officials, visit advocacy groups, and tour historic sites and monuments around our nation’s capital in collaboration with Close Up Washington D.C. We saw up close how our government works, met with lawmakers and opinion-shapers, visited non-profit organizations standing up for human rights, and learned about our role in shaping the democratic process.

We had an amazing time on our trip and are already looking forward to next year!
