BIO

CJ Pearson is a political commentator who commands a brand and following, with a message that inspires the young and old conservatives. He has a Facebook fan base of more than 29,000 followers and a YouTube Channel viewership of well over 2 million. He’s been featured on Fox News, in the Washington Times and USA Today, and on radio shows such as Mark Levin and Laura Ingraham. Strongly believing that young people, regardless of political affiliation, must become involved in the political process, CJ founded the Young Georgians in Government. He currently serves as Executive Director where he has introduced pieces of legislation to the Georgia General Assembly, fought for real solutions facing young people across Georgia, and has made strides to engaging young people in the political process.

Why is it important that at this particular point in time, right-of-center youth become involved publicly, whether in politics, media, their communities, or in other capacities?

The future of this nation is at stake and it is up to the conservative youth of America to rise up and save this country. While the political elite and career politicians sit in Washington, gambling away our future, we must remain vigilant. We can either choose to sit on the sidelines and be a part of the problem, or be on the frontlines and be a part of the solution.

What must elected officials and others in positions of leadership do to make a right-of-center message resonate with the Millennial generation?

The Republican party has been to known have great values and amazing principles, but with terrible messaging. It is crucial for those conservatives involved in public service to effectively communicate conservatism in a way that relates to the Millennial generation. Young people are worried: we’re worried about the job market; we’re worried about the skyrocketing cost of tuition; and we’re worried about student loans. But, guess what?! Conservatives have presented, time and time again, quality solutions to those issues. Let’s talk about them!

Where would you like to see the conservative movement in 10 years — and how can it get there?

In 10 years, I would like to see the conservative movement be a diverse, innovative movement consisting of individuals from all walks of life. I would like to see a movement that embraces all people and makes strides in communities we’ve never gone to before. For the conservative movement to remain relevant in the future, it is crucial that we grow the movement and come together to fight for what we believe in.
