ANALYZING & COMMUNICATION COMPLEX PUBLIC POLICIES
At NETWORK, I regularly composed policy pieces on multifaceted issues pertaining to immigration legislation. These pieces communicated multifaceted issues to NETWORK‘s progressive Catholic members and advocates through the NETWORK website.
I obtained an integral understanding of our country’s complex immigration policy and solutions to enhance our policies so that our country remains competitive while upholding the dignity of those who wish to immigrate to the United States.
