Caleb Hersh received his bachelor's degree in political science from Brown University, with a focus in American politics. As an undergraduate, he researched how election policy affects judges' incentives to be influenced by partisanship in their decision making. For two summers, Caleb researched and composed a guidebook to the American legal system for immigrants under the direction of Rhode Island attorney Donna Nesselbush. He has also served as a legislative intern working for Rhode Island State Representative Joe Shekarchi and as a constituent services intern in the district office of Congresswoman Nita Lowey. Caleb, a native New Yorker, is particularly passionate about furthering participation in, and accessibility of, the democratic process, especially as a means of promoting wider citizen involvement and interest in state and local government.
