Award Year 


Sean Manning is a senior at Brown University, concentrating in Political Science with an interest in the intersection of grassroots organizing and mass media. Firmly committed to the causes and campaigns he works on, he took a semester off from Brown to work as an organizer for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016. Inspired by the campaign organizers and volunteers that he encountered on this journey and ignited by the results of the election, he took another semester off to help support NextGen America’s record-shattering youth turnout effort in Wisconsin in 2018. Sean has interned in the Office of Governor Gina Raimondo, Congressman Tim Ryan, and Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish. He is a proud native of Cleveland, Ohio.
