Please Welcome new Colorado Intern Jenny Weyel

Jenny Weyel recently moved to Denver from Berlin, Germany, where she completed her M.A. in Political Science with a thesis on the U.S. prison system. In Berlin she has done solidarity work with detained immigrants pending deportation, and in Denver she currently interns with the Colorado Progressive Coalition (CPC), where she worked on a bill against racial profiling that became Colorado law this summer. In her free time, she tutors residents at a halfway house, plays soccer, and enjoys hiking in the Rocky Mountains.

Jenny will be working on a variety of issues with the Colorado team, including Election Connection work and paid sick days small business organizing. To contact Jenny, email jennyw@9to5.org.
