when his housekeeper experienced trouble obtaining a green card. Adam contacted his US Senator on her behalf and she is now a permanent resident of the United States. After successfully obtaining legal status for his housekeeper, he moved on to whatever leadership position was open to him in Middle & High school, including President of the junior parking committee.
During Mr. Plimpton's high school years, he took an internship with Congresswoman Nita Lowey and later with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's immigration department. It was then that Plimpton realized his ambition to run for public office. With political ambitions at heart, all paths lead him to Washington D.C. where he studied Law & Society at American University. While in school, Plimpton maintained his internship with Senator Clinton’s office while working with Big Brothers, Big Sisters.
Plimpton has continued to be involved in helping today’s youth maintain the perks of a modern lifestyle in a safe fashion. This effort manifested into Plimpton’s own foundation & business, DateBus. A safe yet desirable option of public transit, DateBus offered a luxurious yet affordable transit opportunity to predominantly West Hollywood. The idea was to bring the community together while curbing drinking & driving rates.
Post working with West Hollywood to curate their own unique version of DateBus, Plimpton took an internship in Senator Barbara Boxer’s office in Los Angeles. Here, Plimpton was once again reminded how small motions can make a dramatic impact in the community and his itch to make a change was awoken.
Currently, Plimpton serves on the Advocacy and Community Engagement Board for Habitat for Humanity in Los Angeles - with active projects in the Lynwood and Long Beach areas.
While not organizing the community, you can catch Plimpton at Starbucks working on his book, or volunteering at various agencies for 30 Acts To Give Back. Today, Plimpton uses the knowledge he's gained and puts it to use through his outreach group, SoCal Initiative. Since its inception in 2013, SCI has helped communities all over Southern California with events from trash pickups and community beautification to book and canned food drives.
