Welcome to “Blue Kids, Red States,” an online blog written for and by young adults. The posts will be political commentaries written by a compilation of anonymous writers. The premise of the blog is to give a voice to young progressives that live in heavily Republican states, hence the title. Their views are unique and their opinions are personal; however, they exist on this blog to serve as a public platform and voice for young progressives. If you are a young Democrat in an overwhelming conservative state, community, school, and/or family, this blog is your refuge.
