Thirty Under Thirty 2012
From the launch of Red Alert Politics, our goal has been to Inform, Engage and Activate young conservatives across the country by serving as a platform for young people to receive news written for young conservatives by young conservatives and to present the opportunity for aspiring young journalists and activists to make their voices heard.
With our inaugural “30 Under 30 List” we’re adding another pillar to our objectives: Inspire.
Every person who was selected for this list has a unique story about just how influential young people can be with hard work and a can-do attitude.
Choosing just 30 young conservatives, libertarians and Republicans was tough. We would have profiled hundreds of young people making a difference on their campuses and communities if we could – we’re already looking forward to compiling next year’s list!
For that reason, we chose to close the list to Red Alert contributors and Clarity Media Group staff (The Weekly Standard, The Washington Examiner) in order to be as fair as possible. We think every single one of our contributors and the writers at our sister publications are doing stellar work and we’d have taken up the entire list if we’d included them all.
We hope that you’re as inspired by this great group of young people as we are and are encouraged to go out this presidential election year and show the country what our generation is capable of accomplishing.
