Jeremy Seitz-Brown

Jeremy hails from South Central Pennsylvania and is a rising sophomore at Swarthmore College, where he is majoring in Political Science and Spanish. Much of his academic work has involved studying how to making democracy work better, so he’s thrilled to have the opportunity to further this learning and work at FairVote. Last summer, he participated in a student policy writing program called the Roosevelt Institute Summer Academy while also interning with New York City Councilmember Brad Lander’s office. In the past academic year, he co-founded a Swarthmore chapter of the Roosevelt Institute’s national student network in order to give students a platform to develop and advocate for their local and state policy ideas.  He's also been active in the college’s fossil fuel divestment campaign and progressive Christians group. In his free time, he enjoys following DC sports teams, playing ping pong and tennis, and nerding out on Wikipedia.

So naturally, when I saw FairVote listed as an option for Swarthmore’s one-week, winter break externship program, I quickly made it my first choice. After a great externship with FairVote, I am thrilled to be here for a full summer as a research intern.
