WATCH: Paige Elkington Hits the High Line for Ring Your Rep

New York-Stand Up
A few weeks ago, we sent our pal Paige Elkington (@myfriendpaige) to the Frieze Art Fair on Randall’s Island to find out where the art world stands on political issues. The responses ran the spectrum, but more than anything we were impressed with people's engagement and their willingness to talk. Turns out, all you need is a red jumpsuit, a microphone, and a direct line to Congress

This week, we have the second installment, in which Paige sets out from The Standard, High Line take the temperature of the streets. She talked to a cross-section of people to get their thoughts on the current state of our politics, whether protesting and calls makes a difference, and what makes for an effective political representative.
