Andrew Kaplan '15 and Sam Gilman '15 think the millennial voice is not being heard in Washington D.C.

In the fall of 2013, these chapters formulated The Agenda for Generational Equity (AGE), the nation’s first millennial bipartisan policy agenda.

Even further off-the-beaten track, she worked at the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health in Providence. We chatted about how her views of feminism and language have developed throughout her Brown experience.
