We are excited to share with you a docuseries created by our previous DH Student Executive Committee Co-Coordinator, Briana Burroughs ‘17. “The Politics of People” is a five part political docuseries about four voters and two local elected officials in New Haven. Her docuseries was featured at the 2017 New Haven Documentary Film Festival at their first ever videotheque!
Briana ‘17 has been a Dwight Hall Urban Fellow, Institutional Service Coordinator of Dwight Hall’s Student Executive Committee, part of our FOCUS pre-orientation program, and shaped our Outreach Fellows program into its current form. These highlights don’t begin to explain all that she has contributed and accomplished during her time at Yale. She thanks us in her credits, but we would like to thank her for her passion and dedication to creating social change.
