My name is Kari and I'm from New Port Richey, a part of Florida's 9th District. I am a women's and LGBTQ rights activist, and very passionate about my beliefs. Lately there have been countless attacks on reproductive rights and basic civil rights for multiple underrepresented groups. The upcoming presidential election will be a defining moment for the future of the United States.
When I was a student, I was a very active volunteer in my college community and occasionally in Washington, D.C. However, I have never had the opportunity to get involved in Florida. Florida is a political battleground that comes down to every last vote. This is why I can’t wait to join 2012 campaign in Florida this summer.
