Glorianna & Mercina Tillemann-Dick

In 2010, Glorianna and her sister Mercina initiated SB42, a bill designed to modify the choice architecture for organ donors in Colorado and thus increase organ donation in the state. Mercina has interned in the offices of the Lantos Human Rights Commission, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and the Hungarian fashion house, Design by Lucia. As a representative to the Colorado Youth Advisory Council (COYAC), Mercina advised the state legislature on issues relevant to Colorado youth. Glorianna has worked as an intern for Rep. Dennis Kucinich; she has participated in W2W (an international women’s conference), and in various Colorado environmental, homelessness, and artistic organizations. Both sisters are currently enrolled at Yale University.
