The former spokesman for Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., who signed on Monday as North American communications director with the ONE Campaign, said one of the most rewarding moments in his career involved watching lawmakers come together to kick bigotry to the curb as part of the It Gets Better campaign.

“For me, the best days were the ones where I felt the work I was doing was directly constructive,” Koski said of the sense of accomplishment that followed from a particularly fruitful project. One such instance was a collaborative effort orchestrated in conjunction with the It Gets Better campaign.
