Your voice makes a difference. Getting involved can be as simple as sending a letter or visiting your representatives or you might want to consider a one-year fellowship in a Congressional office or with the Department of State. Make sure that your representatives in the U.S. House and Senate know how their decisions on key issues will impact you.
