On Jan. 22-27, 19 students from grades 11 and 12 at Lincoln High School took a sightseeing trip to Washington, D.C. and engaged in discussion and deliberation of current events with students from across the US and Puerto Rico. On Jan. 25, Capitol Hill Day, the students met with Senator Alex Padilla of California and also met with staffers from Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senator Dianne Feinstein’s offices.

The trip was made possible in partnership with Close Up Washington D.C. According to their website, students experience history and government, consider a variety of viewpoints on important current issues, and build the skills of engaged citizenship.
