  • Anya Leonhard - Youth, LGBT, Asian-American delegate candidate for Bernie Sanders

    Sen. Sanders's policies strive for empathy and accessibilty in all forms of government. I think of these values as the best of politics and the best of America -- summarized by his movement of diverse, progressive people. Laws affect us: those that govern who can marry, who can stay in the country, who can afford an education. I organize protests against racial injustice here in Germany, in the wake of devastating white supremacist attacks. I handed out ballots and counted votes at the Global Presidential Primary. I volunteer for reproductive rights. I'm genuinely afraid of the consequences of the last administration, but also hopeful for improvement. My experiences as a lesbian of color and as a medical student in Europe have shown me the incredible importance of Sen. Sanders's campaign -- a campaign I would be honored to represent.
