U.S. Senator Tom Udall (D-N.M.) this week thanked María Chávez Juárez for her work in his Washington, D.C., office as a legislative intern. During her tenure working on Capitol Hill, Chávez Juárez worked as an integral member of the legislative team.
“U.S. Senate interns gain invaluable experience as they learn to navigate our nation’s legislative process,” said Udall. “María has been a dedicated and integral part of our legislative team, especially during an unprecedented time. I thank María for her service to New México and wish her well on her next chapter as she finishes college and begins her career.”
“Interning for Senator Udall’s office was an eye-opening experience to the work that needs to be done to protect and conserve our planet,” Chávez Juárez said. “My favorite part was seeing how much the Senator has done to leave a better world for our families and children. People’s voices matter when it comes to change—it’s all about consistency.”
