Julia Fassbender

Welcome back for another Featured Dems post, a series where you get to learn a little more about our members and all the awesome things they do outside of OUCD!
Hey everyone! My name is Julia Fassbender and I am a freshman from North Royalton, Ohio studying Political Science here at Ohio University. I am most passionate about criminal justice reform, women’s rights, universal healthcare, LGBTQ+ rights and much much more. Along with being a College Democrat, I was an intern for Defend Our Future this past semester which is an organization that fights against climate change. Interning with them I got experience real grassroots organizing which included canvassing on campus, going to local political offices to tell them not to vote on additional cuts to the EPA’s budget and phone banking. We also talked to students and asked them to commit to calling their senators and express their concerns about EPA and other environmental policies. During the fall semester alone, we achieved over 3,000 commits! I really enjoyed feeling like I was making a real difference through this hands-on activism.
