What's it like to help the legislative sausage get made? Join CIS to learn about pursuing a career in public policy from DC veteran India McKinney. India is a legislative analyst at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, where she fights for consumer privacy and robust surveillance oversight using skills she developed during her time in Washington. India spent over 10 years working as a legislative staffer to three members of Congress from California. Her work there primarily focused on the appropriations process, specifically analyzing and funding programs in the Departments of Justice, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs. Her biggest legislative accomplishment was authorizing, funding and then naming a new outpatient VA/DoD clinic that now serves over 80,000 people.
