Alex Ames, a School of Public Policy student, was quoted in the article, 'Georgia teens become unlikely warriors in redistricting fight', on November 25, 2021, on NBC News.

The article discusses youth activism in Georgia's redistricting.

An excerpt:

“It was actually much easier to get involved than during the normal legislative session. We didn’t have to skip school to testify. There were much more public input opportunities across the state,” Ames, who now serves as the group’s communications director, said in an interview. “That made it really easy for students who had all these frustrations with S.B. 202, which felt like it snuck on some people.”
