Finally, here is one of several dozen reflections made by a students who attended Black Policy Day:

“The trip to the capital was an amazing experience. I sadly was not able to speak to a legislature as it was packed and was a short burst of time to speak to them. I got the opportunity to listen to information on subjects such as diversity, race, gender, sex, and religion. I was also further informed on safe sex and plan B. We were able to listen to laws being discussed by the House, and had an amazing lunch with amazing speakers educating us as we ate. It was a great time and I learned a lot!”
