This past weekend, BridgeUSA held its 2nd Annual National Summit in Dallas, TX! Several college chapters embarking in the Bridge Movement attended the summit. It was BridgeMNSU's first summit since it was founded, and we were able to send three students to attend. There were over 50 students that attended in total from over a dozen chapters from all over the United States.
Hearing from prominent speakers such as congressmen, activists, and business leaders, our students had the opportunity to engage in skill-building sessions and connect with chapters to develop sense of community.
We attended several banquets and met prominent political leaders, such as Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), Felipe Calderón (Former President of Mexico), and many more. In addition, our chapter had the chance to connect with some of our partners, including Pnyka, Listen First Project, and the Bridge Alliance.
