On behalf of Young Voices’ network of 50+ writers, I’d like to wish you a happy holiday season. 2017 has been a momentous year for our work spreading the message of liberty in print and across the airwaves around the world.
We transformed our keystone Advocate Program, raised the bar for participation, accepted a new crop of writers, and drastically expanded our TV and radio output. We doubled down on our popular Campus Pundit Program, rewarding college students for publishing op-eds defending free speech on their college campus. Finally, we launched a new program, the Free Society Fellowship, aimed at tackling the threat that illiberal populism presents to a peaceful and prosperous world.
All of this would not have been possible the support of our donors, partner organizations, Advocates, and alumni. For that, I am extremely grateful and excited to share some updates.
