Kelsey Barowich (MPP '16)  was an intern at the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus (MWPC), a nonpartisan nonprofit that aims to get more women elected and appointed to local, state and federal political office. “You might not be writing or voting on policy, but without an organization like MWPC there would be a lot missing from our political system here in Massachusetts," Barowich said.
