Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
I think Close Up’s virtual program is an amazing experience…
As a government teacher, it’s nice to have more resources…
for teaching media literacy and having students critically think about the information they receive.
I learned that there’s a huge network of people with the same goals and drive as me…
and that our collaboration really could make a difference. It gave me hope for the future of our communities and our nation!
