Anna Katherine Daley, Summer 2017 Intern

During my time interning for Palmetto Family Council, I have been able to observe and take part in the invaluable work Palmetto Family is doing for our state. Going into this internship, I considered myself fairly familiar with issues facing our state. However, during my time here, I have been able to gain insight into the real situation in South Carolina and our country. Whether it be through writing a blog post about gambling in South Carolina, or researching statistics on alcohol abuse in the state, I seen the devastation that certain policies, laws, or lack thereof can bring to families and communities.

Though this is not always a positive and encouraging picture, Palmetto Family works to not only make tangible policy changes in our state, but to help create a better sense of positivity and hope. As a conservative millennial, it is easy to get discouraged about the way my generation is moving, but with Palmetto Family and their allies’ help, young people should feel empowered and capable to stand up against the liberal tide. In doing so, we can take part in the work to make South Carolina and the United States a better place to live and raise a family.
