In order to educate and articulate conservatism to a new American generation of voters and activists, a representative group of "plugged-in" young professional conservatives in the Washington, DC area have formed the Young Conservatives Coalition (YCC).
"The YCC is an advocacy organization dedicated to leading the next generation of the conservative movement by organizing and mobilizing young professional conservatives across the country," stated YCC President Christopher Malagisi. "It's our turn to step up and start taking a greater leadership role within the movement by harnessing the power and ingenuity of young conservatives, while at the same time dispelling the myth that all voters under the age of 40 are liberals."
There will be several guest speakers at the CPAC event discussing the importance of young conservative activism. Guest speakers include: Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform; Charlie Smith, National Chairman of the College Republican National Committee; David Kirby, Executive Director of the America's Future Foundation; Mario Lopez, President of the Hispanic Leadership Fund; and a national officer from the Young Republican National Federation.
The YCC has embarked upon several major projects including creating a conservative legislative platform for 2009, an online video public relations campaign to rebrand conservatism, and facilitate monthly action meetings. These meetings will allow YCC members the opportunity to communicate, network, and strategically coordinate political and legislative activity with each other. General membership is open to all young conservative activists.
