Young Voices offers our contributors the opportunity to take a deep-dive on issues that they’re passionate about, aided by resources and mentorship we receive from our partner organizations. Young Voices currently has four active policy campaigns on state policy, consumer freedom, technology and energy & environment. Each media hit is the expressed opinion of the author alone (see our Code of Ethics). This page will be updated periodically with relevant media hits.

State Policy

Many key policy decisions are made at the state level. From education to the economy, state policy has a significant impact on the everyday lives of citizens. Young Voices writers are exploring these vital local, municipal, and state developments.

From overzealous content moderation to calls to break up ‘monopolies’ which would do much more harm than good, Young Voices is promoting a common-sense approach to tech policy which puts the consumer first.

In 2022, Young Voices is placing an additional spotlight on a specific area of tech policy. Regulatory sandboxes are a pioneering policy idea which provides a red tape-free bubble for certain companies top do business free of much of the regulation which would otherwise hold them down,. Regulatory sandboxes offer a boost to innovation and the free market. top do business free of much of the regulation which would otherwise hold them down.
