Within politics, his primary area of interest is in studying and mitigating political polarization, which he hopes to do in his work with YIP. He is also a member of No Labels’ Youth Congress, where he works with other young political minds around the country to develop policy that could ultimately be presented to members of Congress in the Problem Solvers Caucus. In Brandon’s free time, he enjoys playing sports, watching movies, and writing.
