Our Special Topics Committee
The topics that our Special Topics Committee choose are decided by the committee members. For the 2019-2020 school year, we have four special topics; Voting Rights, Animal Rights, Health & Disability Rights and Foreign Policy.

I am a third-year political science major with a commitment to ensuring that the right to vote can be freely exercised by everyone in America. A democracy is not a true democracy if the right to vote is not a universal guarantee for its citizens, and it is a right that many Americans are being denied. I hope to accomplish three main objectives. First, I plan to raise awareness about the loss of these basic rights. Second, I plan to point the finger at those responsible for stripping these rights away. Finally, I plan organize the people of America to take back the right to vote.
I am a third-year political science major who's been fascinated with the inner workings and outward effects of politics from a young age. I have a special passion for foreign policy and relations fostered by my international travels, experiences, and sense of place in the global community. I hope to further inform members of the club and greater student body on these issues of particular importance in the upcoming presidential election year.
I am pursuing a double major in History and English. I am a pescatarian who is passionate about stopping the planet’s biggest environmental destroyer, the number one cause of American deaths, and the biggest source of suffering around the world: animal agriculture. I hope to promote animal activism, healthy lives, and the reduction of our environmental footprint.
