House Majority Leader to GW Students: Get Involved

On April 19, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, CCAS BA ’85, R-Va., was in Foggy Bottom to encourage GW students to get involved in issues that are important to them, and ones that will make the world a better place.

“We need your help,” he told the students gathered at GW Hillel. “Because that’s what’s unique about our country. We’re a country whose power is derived from the people. It’s not a dictatorship. It doesn’t come from on high. It comes from situations like this where good ideas grow. I encourage you, take advantage.”

The event was organized by GW Challah for Hunger, a chapter of the national nonprofit which sells the Jewish bread challah to benefit the American Jewish World Service Sudan Relief and Advocacy Fund. The group brought Virginia’s 7th District representative to campus to talk about his Jewish faith, politics, policy and youth engagement, and where they all intersect.
