Dana Nothnagel: TPP Activists Speaker Series

March 24, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Dana Nothnagel, a researcher with the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research and Pitzer alumna, will talk about working in civic channels, activism “inside” and “outside” the system, California’s political structure, the future of activism, and more.

Dana was born and raised in Illinois and graduated from Pitzer College in 2019 with a degree in Political Studies. After graduation, she accepted a fellowship with the Capital Fellows Executive Fellowship program in Sacramento, CA. Through the Capital Fellows program, she was placed at the California Research Bureau, an advisory agency that provides non-partisan, confidential research to the Governor’s Office and Legislature. After completing her fellowship, she moved to the California Governor’s Office of Planning and Research where she conducts research on the economic impact of national security investment in California communities.

Civic Change, Power, and Voice: Lessons From the Community” was conceived as a chance for students to learn from activists, scholars, and community organizers on the front lines of enacting change with an emphasis on civic action. We’ll be hearing from a wide range of speakers with diverse backgrounds, allowing a fuller picture of the various faces of civic responsibilities and opportunities students may pursue in community activism. This event was supported by Strategic Initiative Funds from the Campus Life Committee.
