Via FM, aka the blog that will write my thesis:
Two weeks ago the Obama Transition Team appointed Lily Rothman, a Pennsylvania youth organizer for the campaign, as Youth Liaison for the transition. I’ve spoken with Lily and my understanding is that she is on staff to consult with youth advocates in order create the job description for the eventual White House youth liaison. To the extent that she can help, we need to be working with Lily not only on ensuring that the eventual WH Youth Liaison is an effective partner and advocate for our work, but that we are properly navigating the channels in the Administration that will let us put specific policies into consideration for the first 100 Days. In particular I see the liaison helping set up meetings between youth advocates and the appropriate policy teams within the Administration and perhaps on the Hill.
BU for Barack would like to congratulate Lily- your work during PA GOTV with all of the student groups coming down (like us) was just astounding.
Now, don’t you think political connections like these are great for umm… let’s say, a BU for Barack offshoot group known as BU Student Advocates for Progressive Politics (SAPP). Yeah, me too!
