The Young Guns. That are smarter than anyone else at New Era.
BAM. This is the crew that gets it done. They register voters. They lobby policy. They knock on doors. They recruit volunteers. They put on candidate debates. They even drive our bus (sometimes). Real slackers, huh?
The New Era Interns:
Tara Schulz was born and raised in Mead, Colorado and spent most of her childhood playing soccer when she wasn’t convincing her twin to switch places with her at school. She became involved with New Era last summer and loved it so much she had to stay for the fall! After she graduates from the University of Colorado, Tara will use her degrees in economics and international affairs to become the next Wolf of Wallstreet.
Page Little is a senior at CU Boulder and is majoring in environmental studies. She was born and raised in Fresno, California and decided to trade in her desert roots for the frozen tundra because, Colorado. She’s on fire for LGBTQ rights, all things environment, and AMERICA. Her talents include overusing the word traumatic, perfecting her #selfie taking abilities, eating massive amounts of sushi, and pretending to like hiking.
Born in California and raised in the South, Ashley Bockholdt was constantly surrounded by an interesting mix of ideas; especially regarding politics. Over the years her love for politics and English literature have grown to make Ashley a very outspoken member of society. Now Ashley is a freshman at CU Boulder double majoring in English Literature and Humanities, with plans of a career in teaching and campaign work.
Charlotte Truesdell is a sophomore at CU Boulder studying psychology. She is a Colorado native who loves hiking and being outside, but one day she hopes to live in Martha’s Vineyard enjoying the sun and the beautiful ocean. She is passionate about getting people registered to vote and wants everyone to participate in their democracy. Another small obsession of Charlotte’s is sushi, because, duh.
Clare Davis was born and raised in central Pennsylvania but now is a new Boulder local. She is a freshman at CU working towards a degree in International Affairs. She’s pumped about getting caught up to speed about local politics as well as leadership skills at New Era! Politically, she’s passionate about environmental sustainability and women’s rights. Her lifetime goals are to travel the world and work toward positive change. Her interests include hiking, running, and exploring new places.
Celie Davis grew up in Oklahoma City and moved to Colorado in 2010 to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder. She graduated this past May with a B.A. cum laude in Environmental Studies and Communication. This past summer, she interned for a local nonprofit as an environmental educator and solidified her passion for the food justice and local food movements. She wants to pursue environmental policy and believes that New Era offers the best first step toward realizing her many goals in life!
Caitlin Gortze is a sophomore at CU Boulder majoring in Political Science and minoring in Women and Gender Studies. She was born and raised on the streets of Boston, MA, but is only a masshole when she drives (She even once got a ticket for parking her car on Harvard Yard). After she graduates from CU, she hopes to return to the east coast for law school to study constitutional law and eventually take over Washington and the world! Growing up in the gay marriage capital of the country, she developed a passion for equal rights, along with a completely normal obsession with Boston sports and an even more natural hatred of the New York Stankees.
