Jesse met with members of Indivisible Somerville last night to discuss how Somerville's government body works and how people can get more engaged on the local level. "It's been so inspiring to meet so many people who are new to community activism seeking out ways they can affect change through politics on the local level. Indivisible Somerville has a huge network of talented individuals who will, no doubt, have a great impact wherever they choose to focus their efforts. I'm looking forward to working with them in the future." – Jesse Clingan
