Hi, my name is Hayley Martin and I am a new programming intern at the Peace and Justice Center. As a recent graduate from the University of Vermont and a resident of the state for almost five years, I could not be more excited about beginning to work for this organization and within a community that I care so much about! Having earned my degree in Political Science, I am excited to put some of my past lessons and experiences to use, and to gain new insights and perspectives that only a hands-on internship could provide. As someone who has always been both very opinionated and very optimistic, I have found all of my past non-profit work to be very rewarding. I am especially passionate about community engagement and the power of grass-roots mobilization. Other than working for equality and social justice you can find me volunteering at the library, bike riding, or scribbling away in my notebook at a coffee shop.
