Civic Engagement


For her Blueprint project, Tamara spearheaded the behind-the-scenes effort to get more student organizations involved in student government (USG) elections. She conducted interviews for candidates with progressive organizations and thereafter encouraged endorsements from organizations. The endorsements had a 100% success rate and voter turnout increased by over 10% in both senator and executive USG elections. Tamara will implement forums in the fall so that those elected can be held accountable by their endorsers and will continue to work in the Progressive Voter Coalition (PVC) every spring over multiple election periods.
