A summer internship with the Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus has been established in honor of Representative Deborah Blumer, a Framingham Democrat who died last year.
College juniors and seniors will be eligible for the paid internship with the non-partisan group dedicated to increasing the number of women involved in state politics and public policy issues.
The internship will be sponsored by Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, and was announced yesterday at the organization's annual luncheon.
“The Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus is just one of a long list of organizations and individuals that lost a friend and ally with Debby's passing,” said Executive Director Jesse Mermell. “We are proud to be able to celebrate her legacy by creating a program that will address two of Debby's great passions: supporting young people, and encouraging women's leadership in Massachusetts politics.”
