Monday: Going to the Hill
Posted on 03/15/2011 @ 01:20 PM
"Today we went to the Hart Senate building and lobbied at Senator Lautenberg's office (NJ) on the issues of homelessness, mental health and Israel. We discussed how homlessness affects millions of teens in the US, how bullying can lead to depression and teen suicide, and how the situation in Egypt is affecting Israel. We asked for the senator's continuing support on these issues and commended him for what he is already doing. We then took a tour of the Capitol and learned about not only the workings of the House and Senate, but also interesting facts and stories about the buildings."
