Congratulations to Brandon Straka and everyone at the #WalkAway Campaign for celebrating their one year anniversary!
My thoughts re: Walk Away are a little complicated. This is the movement that put me on the national stage and reignited my passion for writing about politics after a nearly decade-long career covering entertainment. I will always be grateful to Brandon for inspiring me to become the person I am today, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have concerns about the direction the campaign is headed in.
I walked away from Walk Away right around the 2018 midterms. I’m often asked why my videos are never featured, why my clips never show up in their slickly-produced compilation videos, and to that I don’t have an answer. As far as I knew when I left, the split was amicable and I still wish them the best.
One year later, I’d love to hear your thoughts about the successfulness (or failures) of this campaign. Please visit the YouTube video above and share your thoughts in the comments, always appreciate your support.
