About a year ago, Michael reached out to Demi with an idea.

Working together on the California Forward Youth Council, Michael realized that we could use our experience and love for policy to provide a very necessary platform for policy communication to and from youth. Soon after we were extremely fortunate to pick up the support from Youth Leadership Institute who has turned this dream into a reality.

Since then, we have been able to speak to incredible guests from a wide range of backgrounds and prospectives. We’ve  decided that we should be doing all that we can to get this information in front of policy makers and young folks.

We are excited to bring on two new members of the policy wise team

Welcome Mehek and Ellie!
