Active Citizen Profile – Carolyn Calder

Carolyn Calder

Carolyn Calder is involved in Aim 4 and leads a Williamsburg Engagement trip to Head Start each week.

Carolyn’s thoughts on active citizenship: “To me, active citizenship is about constant engagement with your community in an effort to improve the lives of those around you. Active citizenship doesn’t take a break– in all of your actions, you have to think about how this can impact your community and how you can be of better service to your community. Active citizenship is cool, because it allows you to let community engagement permeate every aspect of your life. ”

Carolyn’s favorite quote: “Having a right isn’t worth a damn if you can’t exercise it.”- Cecile Richards, president of PP
