I apologize for being quiet of late. If you want to know what I’m partly up to these days, check out my interview with Conservative Book Club and why I’m their newest member.
Below is an excerpt:
Our CBC Member of the Week is Gabriella Hoffman, who is a Regional Field Coordinator for The Leadership Institute. The institute is a national conservative political training organization that has the leading robust program in the country helping to start campus conservative groups. Gabriella and her team are the tip of the spear counter-checking liberalism on our college campuses.
Congratulations Gabriella on being our Conservative Book Club “Member of the Week!” Tell us a little about yourself and the work you do as a Regional Field Coordinator at The Leadership Institute?
Thank you for profiling me! It’s an honor and a privilege to be featured at CBC.
I’m a proud young conservative blogger and activist. I spent most of my life in Southern California, but now call Northern Virginia home. I’m a 2012 graduate of UC-San Diego. I also manage three blogs with my sister Anna Maria Hoffman, who’s also a young conservative activist. Our projects include Counter Cultured, People of America, and A Taste of Patriarchy. Through our work, we aim to give a human face to conservatism.
I’ve been a Regional Field Coordinator at The Leadership Institute for over three years, specifically working with college students in the Northeast. I assist college students with starting/growing campus groups, exposing bias, and starting campus newspapers. Additionally, I occasionally teach lectures on social media and am responsible for managing LI’s campus speakers program.
What got you interested in the work you do?
You could say conservatism flows in my bloodstream! Since I was born to parents who fled Soviet-occupied Lithuania, conservatism and my subsequent work in the movement came naturally to me.
When your relatives survive imprisonment in a gulag or escape collectivism, one has no choice but to wholly reject the Left and their big government policies. How can one not like the principles of faith, family, freedom, and free markets?
