Meet Our Summer Communications Intern

MaMara smallra Brennan-Magidson is a recent graduate of The Evergreen State College where she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Latin American Studies. Her studies focused on political economy and postcolonial theory, including challenges to social justice movements in communities worldwide. She sees clean water access as an important issue that links “struggles for peace and justice globally,” and she is excited to delve into the Institute’s past research on clean water access issues.

At the Institute, Mara will focus on making the organization’s publications more accessible online by improving website copy and keyword searching capabilities for more than 200 publications the organization has released over the past 30 years. After completing the internship, she hopes to leverage the experience to pursue further work supporting non-profit organizations lending “a keen analytical perspective to current events.”
