Sam Feineh

I have had two Cardinal Quarters that have greatly shaped my outlook on public service. After my freshman year, I interned in Washington DC for my local Congressman. The following summer, I returned to DC and worked for the ACLU National Prison Project, an organization dedicated to reforming prison conditions nationwide. While I’m particularly interested in the intersection of civil rights, policy and politics, I also have some experience working in the nexus of artificial intelligence/emerging technology and public policy. If any of my experiences interest you or you just want to learn how to get involved in public service, come talk to me! I am excited to tell you about my experiences and help you on your path to service.
