"To The Citizens Of The United States: Our Children Need Your Protection"
Fellows' Op-Ed Published in the Huffington Post
A small group of fellows from Cohort Six recently published an op-ed piece in The Huffington Post titled, "To The Citizens Of The United States: Our Children Need Your Protection." The piece is addressed to fellow U.S. citizens and asks them to engage politically and encourage their Congressional representatives to support initiatives that help all children, regardless of background, reach their full potential.
Cohort Six Fellows Julia Fleckman, Melissa Marquardt, Alison Giovanelli, Rachel Katz, and Jennifer Daer Shields collaborated on the piece as part of their small group participation as Doris Duke Fellows. This op-ed is an exciting example of fellows engaging with research to inform policy, a unique feature of the Doris Duke Fellowships.
