On Memorial Day, more than 150 college students from 70 cities and towns across the Commonwealth began interning for Elizabeth Warren. They came from 60 different colleges, and with the start of the new school year, will put the skills they learned to work back on campuses.
Abby Blum, the Summer Intern Director, explains, "The main goal of the program was direct voter contact and hometown organizing. We wanted our interns to have fun working with a real motivated team and the camaraderie that comes from working on a campaign."
Last week, the interns finished their program and ended their last day with a kickball game and plans to meet up again for the GOTV push.
"It's hard to imagine a campaign taking an intern program this seriously," says Morgan Warners, the program's deputy. "The summer started with a bang with the interns playing an important role at the State Convention. They leave having been taught how to organize."
