During my time at The Borgen Project I got to meet with a Congressman and ask him to support the Water for the World Act. It was a very empowering experience. As a volunteer I learned how to advocate for issues that I believe in and I continue to use those skills in other aspects of life.

I think they do a very good job of raising awareness and engaging the public. If you ever have the opportunity I encourage you to visit their office and meet the team.
