Young Voices is Changing How We Do Applications

Throughout our four-year history, Young Voices has accepted applicants to our Advocate Program on a rolling basis. While this has provided us with a steady pipeline of new talent, we want to make sure that each one of our writers is given the special attention needed to succeed as a rockstar communicator for liberty.

That’s why, moving forward, Young Voices will only be accepting new Advocates on a biannual basis. So, if you know a writer under 30 looking to jumpstart his or her career in liberty, please pass along this unique opportunity.

Applications for Young Voices’ fall 2017 Advocate class are now open for a limited time. Prospective Advocates should apply before September 8 for the chance to join the liberty movement’s premier collection of rising thought leaders.

Sadly, some LGBT activists strongly disagree. A group called No Justice No Pride has disrupted Pride parades in at least eight cities in protest of the celebration’s increasing corporatization. In Washington, D.C., the group successfully held up the parade for more than an hour, blocking the streets with a sit-in and signs condemning companies like Wells Fargo.
