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. Real slackers, huh?
The Denver New Era Interns:
Casey Mauck is a freshman at the University of Denver, who plans to major in Public Policy and Environmental Studies. She is originally from Washington state, and came here to see if there really are 300 days of sunshine a year. She is interested in climate change, sustainability, and housing policy. When she’s not at New Era, you can catch her kayaking in the DU pool or getting tackled on the rugby field.
Kate Gillespie is a junior transfer student at Metropolitan State University of Denver. She is majoring in Sociology and hopes to work for a non-profit organization when she graduates. She cares about women’s reproductive rights and mental health. In her free time she plays soccer, watches her puppy sprint around her backyard, and watches way too much television. Her absolute favorite television show is The Good Place because Ted Danson playing a demon is hilarious. She also just spoiled the show so if you haven’t seen it, her bad. Pulp Fiction is her favorite movie and she would love to meet Samuel L. Jackson. She can also eat banana pancakes until she pukes because they are delicious. She’s interning at New Era because she volunteered at March For Our Lives and registering younger voters was really satisfying. She thinks getting younger people out to vote is extremely important for our democratic process.
Marcos Michelena is a junior at MSU majoring in psychology hoping to pursue a career in cognitive psychology. He’s most passionate about climate change and immigration issues. He’s originally from Venezuela and moved to Colorado when he was 13. He speaks fluent Spanish and English and is currently trying to learn some Italian. He became a New Era intern to help his generation get a say in the decisions being made about our future. When he’s not busy with school or work he likes to travel both nationally and internationally.
