92Y Video: Share Your Story™: Matt Bishop

With the elections taking place tomorrow in New York City and around the country, we have a timely update to the Share Your Story™ series. In the video above, 27-year-old Matt Bishop, resident of Astoria, Queens, stepped in front of the camera at the Share Your Story™ booth during the 92Y Street Fest. Bishop told us he spends most of his time doing what he really believes in, public service. Being involved in local politics and policy, being involved in your community, Bishop argues, is the most effective way to change things:

I hope that people will realize that they’re part of a community, and they’re part of something that is much bigger than themselves. And I hope people get involved in politics, whatever your politics are...because when we step out of this democratic process, you have all sorts all of special interests that step in.
