Tommy Sommer
American, Track

Tommy (aka “Tom-Tom”) hails from East Greenwich, Rhode Island. He attends American University, where he runs cross-country and track and studies Public Affairs. Tommy became involved in Grassroots his sophomore year after being taken out to a free lunch by members of the leadership team. His love of free food gave him the opportunity to discover his love for empowering kids to share vital messages surrounding sexual health. Joining TGP in the Fall of 2016, Tommy was the first Grassroots coach from American and has advocated for school-wide participation. There are now 12 AU coaches and counting. After graduating from American, Tommy hopes to attend law school and work in election law and social justice law.
