BIO

Marshall Kosloff is a soon-to-be graduating senior at the University of Oregon, where he studied political science. His interest and involvement in public policy and government began in high school. There, he was elected Oregon YMCA Youth Governor, selected to represent the state at American Legion Boys Nation, won the state championship in Student Congress Debate, and was ranked as one of the top 50 Congressional Debaters in the nation. Recently, Kosloff was selected as a 2015 America’s Future Foundation Emerging Leader and has begun working with the Millennial Action Program as a Policy Fellow. This summer, he is attending the University of Illinois’ Program in Arms Control, Disarmament, and International Security Summer Workshop. Afterwards, he will attend the American Enterprise Institute’s Summer Honors Program where he will study US Foreign and Security Policy in Asia and War and Decision-Making.

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?

America is in the midst of rapid demographic, social, and economic change. In many respects, the America that will elect a new president in 2016 is very different than the one which elected President Reagan in 1980. These changes present distinct challenges to right-of-center policy makers and activists. Young people, those who were born and raised in this new America, are best equipped to face these challenges.

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

Elected officials and other leaders must acknowledge and directly speak to the anxieties and needs of the Millennial generation. Overwhelmingly, Millennials are concerned with higher education and student loans, weak job employment prospects, and healthcare. Many in our generation feel that they lack the opportunity to pursue their American dream. Officials and leaders must show that right-of-center policies can guarantee that dream.

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

I would like to see the conservative movement make inroads into parts of the country (the Pacific Coast especially) where it has had little-to-no influence lately. During the 1980s, conservatives routinely won the Pacific region primarily because their tax-cutting, limited government agenda resonated with voters. Conservatives can similarly rise to the occasion by formulating a right-of-center agenda for the 21st century.
