Riley is a Dartmouth College student running for State Representative. He is running to make sure that young, progressive voices are heard on issues like climate change, voting rights, and gun violence in the New Hampshire state house, where the current average age is 61.
New Hampshire recently passed voter suppression laws targeting students. Riley has been organizing on Dartmouth’s campus to keep students voting and engaged and working with current state representatives to craft legislation addressing issues that matter to young people. Now, he hopes to tackle those issues himself in the New Hampshire state house.
