My name is Connor Brantley. I am currently a junior at Auburn University majoring in Political Science and joined the SPLC on Campus team in June as an Intern. I’m very excited to be working with such a great group of people, spreading SPLC’s message on college campuses across the country and getting people energized for the November elections.
I was born and raised in Fort Worth, TX where my interest in social and political activism started at a young age. Especially in these times, I hope more young people will realize the importance of being engaged in our democracy and the impact they can have simply by voting and making their voice heard.
To make this a reality, we will be sending voter registration and other SPLC materials to over 2,100 campuses nationwide later this summer. We, as students, must take a stand in November against hate and discrimination. Keep an eye out for SPLC on your college campus this fall and please reach out to get involved.
It’s an incredible opportunity to work at such a great organization and I can’t wait to see what we are going to accomplish this year.
