I’m often asked, “What’s a typical day like at Young Voices?” The truth is, there are no typical days in the fast-paced world of media relations. Young Voices is constantly looking for new opportunities and angles to spread the message of liberty to the masses.
But, to give you a better idea of our work, I’d like to share what our Advocates and staff were up yesterday. With respects to John Lennon, I give you “A Day in the Life of Young Voices.”
Articles are the cornerstone of Young Voices’ operations. Yesterday, Editors Liz Wolfe and Lucy Steigerwald made edits on 14 op-eds, pitched four, and had two published.
Among the highlights, Advocate Charlie Katehbi wrote in The Hill how the new tax law, while an improvement, failed to address many of the tax code’s perverse incentives pertaining to health care. In National Review, Advocate Dan King explains why the City of Miami ended their red-light camera program and makes the case for other localities to follow suit.
Meanwhile, Public Relations Manager Stephen Kent was in New York City at the offices of Fox taping an appearance on Kennedy. This is part of a broader effort by Young Voices to get our Advocates onto more TV and radio outlets to spread the message of liberty beyond the written word.
Stephen’s appearance covered a variety of topics including current DACA negotiations, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s planned senate run, and the supposed general pay gap in Hollywood. Click here to watch the segment on Facebook.
Finally, Young Voices capped off the evening by hosting our second webinar talk for our Free Society Fellows from Reason Magazine’s Elizabeth Nolan Brown. The Fellowship is Young Voices’ latest program, giving a cohort of our Advocates specific training on how to message the fundamentals of a free society against attacks from both the far-left and far-right.
And there you have it, an atypical typical day at Young Voices! We’re planning for many more busy days like this to come.
Oh, and if you’re wondering what I was up to, the answer is stuffing envelopes.
