Voice Of the People Executive Director Richard Parsons gave a guest lecture on the Citizen Cabinet initiative to students attending George Washington University’s Semester in Washington Politics program. The students were from high schools all over the country, visiting Washington to learn about government and politics as part of a two-week summer program under the guidance of VOP Advisory Board Member Greg Lebel, who directs the University’s Semester in Washington Politics program.

“The students were incredibly well informed and asked some great questions about how the Citizen Cabinet initiative can improve the way our political system works,” Parsons said. “Giving the people a greater voice is something Americans of all ages can support.”
