About Video:

Capitol Hill interns posed for this selfie with Speaker Paul Ryan. As this 2-minute video shows, the lack of diversity among interns has an impact on the composition of congressional staff and top staff, who make decisions that shape our nation as a whole. .  

Recently, the Joint Center released a report on Racial Diversity Among Top Senate Staff.

This is an issue for both Democrats and Republicans.
