The Work of Local Politics: A Recent Graduate's Story

Thursday, September 19, 2019 at 4:30pm

A.D. White House , Guerlac Room 121 President's Drive

What is the relationship between research and activism? What role can the work of local politics play in negotiating this relationship? Western New York and the Finger Lakes region, where our Ithaca campus is located, provide abundant insights into and opportunities for examining some of the urgent questions that face our country’s future. A 2018 graduate of Cornell’s Government Department, Ryan Quinn, B.A., will tell the story of his academic preparation for and the challenges that he encountered in joining and then becoming a policy adviser for Tracy Mitrano‘s 2018 campaign for U.S. Congress (New York’s 23rd Congressional District).


Ryan Quinn currently works as a Political Analyst for Swing Left in New York City, a grassroots organization working to elect progressive leaders up and down the ballot.
