 The AP Government and Politics class went on a trip to Washington DC on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017 to lobby their Cold Case Records Act. The object of the bill is to have a seperate review board, not the FBI, to bring justice to unsolved Cold Cases from the Civil Rights Era.

  The trip was a success, senior Anna Trancozo reports. “Our main goal was to meet with a lot of Republicans on the committee we are in, which we did, and we received a lot of enthusiastic support from them.”

  Even though the trip ended up being very productive, it got off to a slow start when the bus was late arriving to HHS in the morning. “Because of the bus [being late] we didn’t get to DC until a little after 11:30, so we had to either cancel appointments or try and reschedule them on the way there,” Trancozo said.

  Even though the trip did not start as expected, Trancozo still thought it was worth it. “It was a great experience and I hope we do it again.”
