#5 TOWN HALL MEETINGS: We are hosting weekly town hall meetings: Coronavirus myth busters with healthcare professionals, Small Business stimulus loan programs, Youth Town Hall meetings and College Admissions in the post covid-19 world. Over 20 town hall meetings conducted in the past few weeks

Our internship is mirrored after the fellowship program of President Obama's winning re-election run in 2012. Last summer the Kumar for Congress team had many high school and college students participating from Stanford University, Georgetown University, U C Berkeley, San Jose State University, Santa Clara University, Bellarmine, Palo Alto, Gunn, Lynbrook, Monte VIsta, Saratoga, Harker etc.

Every intern will get a personal letter of recommendation at the end of the program and volunteer hours if needed. Our internship program creates wonderful teaming opportunities for these students and skills that will stay life long. Once the lock-down is lifted, interns can work out of the campaign office closest to their home and team up with friends from school

Rishi Kumar has won every election he has been part of and last year got the most votes in Saratoga's election history. In the last 28 years we have had only 2 competitive congressional races in Silicon Valley. This one is a unique opportunity that is not to be missed.
