NLIHC is pleased to welcome Abigail Barton as the Coalition’s 2020 summer policy intern. A rising junior at Brown University, Abigail is studying public policy and American studies, and she helps lead a student-run advocacy and direct service organization focused on housing justice in Rhode Island. Driven by her work as a housing navigator and advocate for those experiencing housing insecurity and homelessness, Abigail seeks to center the lived experiences of those most impacted in legislative and policymaking processes. She works closely with local organizations to coordinate state and local lobbying efforts rooted in the needs and knowledge of the communities they serve. Abigail is excited for the opportunity to advocate for equitable housing policy at the national level with NLIHC. Please join us in welcoming Abigail to the NLIHC team!
