Student leaders from across the U.S. are starting to arrive in Arlington for the ISN Family Teach-in, we were even surprised to see a Mitty Advocacy Alumna, Alisha Dua.  Alisha brought MAP students the infamous Georgetown cupcakes and is in her 2nd year at Georgetown.

Students are glowing with excitement visiting our nation’s capital.  Such a symbolic and powerful reminder about the vitality of our democracy and country, D.C. reinvigorates a sense of patriotism within each of us tonight.  However divided and bruised our system appears to be, we are bringing forth many bills on 5 issues to help bolster the lives of the less fortunate.  Our issues are Homelessness, Rising Costs of Higher Education, Foster Care, Human Trafficking and Criminal Justice Reform.
