I'm sitting here in the Southern Caucus at the Yearly Kos convention.  Shawn, former YP4 Staff and always a part of the YP4 family, is up on the panel.

The discussion is focused on how to move progressive power in Southern states. There is also a sense that there are huge misconceptions about the "make-up" of the south.  Not to mention the stereotypes we hear every day.

My Senior Fellowship Diary

Every few months - since 2005 - Alex Jung, 2005 Fellow from Columbia University, stops by the YP4 office in NYC. Each time he brings with him copies of the latest edition of Ad Hoc.  Ad Hoc is Columbia University's Progressive Magazine and Alex is its founder and editor.

This May, Alex graduated from Columbia University and later this summer he heads to San Francisco as a Leadership Academy participant.  Congrats Alex!!

This summer Alex will continue to stop by the YP4 Offices.
