In 2017, I Resolve to Engage Publicly and Politically

I have been voting in elections for almost a decade now, but I attended my first Town Hall meeting in December 2016. My congressman, Representative Jared Huffman, had called an “Emergency Town Hall Meeting” to discuss Defending Our Environment & Protecting Our Progress on Climate Change. My attendance was a response to an undesirable election outcome and I wanted to understand where I belonged in this movement.
