On June 6, 2019, Capitol Pathways students, hosts, and supporters gathered for an evening recognizing the achievements and bright futures of our cohort as the 4th year of the program came to a close.

Now, 127 young leaders of color have held internships in and around the State Capitol, many of them continuing their careers in policy and government.

During the evening, we heard from Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan, Representative Ryan Winkler, and Richfield Mayor Maria Regan Gonzalez, as well as current Capitol Pathways student An Garagiola-Bernier, and 2016 alumna Cheniqua Johnson. Take a look below for a social media recap, including photos and words from the evening.

Our sincere thanks to this year’s host organizations, our major funders, and individual donors for making the program possible.
