On March 28, 2012, TWC interns from Wisconsin met with Congressman Sensenbrenner and his legislative director, Amy Bos, at the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. The students, who attend Alvernia University, Regis University and University of Iowa, spoke with the congressman and his staff about policy issues such as:

 

The Patriot Act

Energy/Gas Prices in Wisconsin

Homelessness

Education and standardized testing in Wisconsin

 

When asked about the visit, Kara Gleason from University of Iowa said: " Today’s dialogue increased my knowledge of how to influence and engage my government. I’ve learned to pay closer attention to legislation that my congressional representatives are sponsoring so that I myself can gain a better understanding of office. "

 

Students who participated in the visit included:

 

  • Allison Hart-Regis University
  • Kara Gleason-University of Iowa
  • Thomas Casper-Alvernia University

Public Policy Dialogues on Capitol Hill (PPDCH), sponsored by the Verizon Foundation, provide students with the unique opportunity to meet and interact with members of the Senate or House of Representatives representing their state or congressional district. This is one component of The Washington Center's internship program.
