About this event

Join us for an evening of celebration on Capitol Hill! Young Voices and project founder Daniel DiMartino are glad to introduce our inaugural speakers' class of brave young people who escaped authoritarian regimes. Our roster includes folks who grew up under strong-fisted governments in such places as Hong Kong, Venezuela—and even North Korea.

What is our goal? The newly-launched Dissident Project will provide high schools with access to informed, intelligent perspectives on how authoritarianism takes hold, what happens when it does, and what America can learn from current and former socialist states around the world. These stories are needed now more than ever.

But we want you to hear them first! So come for an evening of mingling, drinking, and hearing from folks who care so deeply about the cause of freedom that they won't give it up without a serious fight. We're proud to give them a platform!
