Fran Watson, Amy Wallner, and Kelly Suzanne Saulsberry all work to make the communities better places, through advocacy for the LGBT community; providing fresh, high quality produce for the food insecure; and ensuring fair treatment of citizens by city government.
Breanna DiGiammarino, Shae Smith, and Emily Graslie use the power of the internet to support impact-driven endeavors, help people organize their own community service projects, and educate people about science.
