Verone Bernard is a senior political science major and economics minor at Howard University by way of Boston, MA. She was a 2013 YP4 Fellow and an intern with the YP4 Fellowship Program from September 2013-April 2014. As a Fellow, she worked to improve dialogue at Howard University around women’s rights and reproductive health, civic engagement opportunities, and other progressive causes. Supporting YP4’s collaborative projects, she organized Howard’s campaign on Money in Elections. Her Blueprint, which is still in works, seeks to serve as a resource to individuals who need a refresher regarding their civic rights. From reproductive justice to voter identification laws, to laws that deal with law enforcement, Verone hopes to provide creative programming at Howard and a mobile application that will give a state-by-state analysis of the law, provide resources for counsel, and connect users with ways to report individuals when their rights are violated.
