Pregame & Politics Hosted in Partnership with Girl and the Gov, thedownballot, & Political Content Creator, Carla Davis
The Details: The pregame didn’t start ’til we walked in, and neither did the politics, which is why Girl and the Gov, thedownballot, and political content creator Carla Davis have teamed up to host an event that brings pregaming and politics together (and who said we couldn’t unify strangers in 2021?). An uncommon pairing, the event bridges pregaming and politics together to create an approachable and relatable format for learning about politics today. Designed to engage the ever-important younger voting bank that is millennials and Gen-Z, the event is geared towards rebranding politics to be less taboo, and more for you, me, and everyone else. The event specifically includes a round-house of politically-oriented drinking games, a panel inclusive of young NY candidates, and Instagrammable/TikTok-able moments galore, more.
The Panel: The panel, which will be moderated by Skye Ostreicher, PoliticsNY.com’s PoliticsNY with Skye, will be a focused conversation with young NY candidates (including Brittany Ramos DeBarros, Ashmi Sheth, Jennifer Gutiérrez, Democratic Nominee for NY City Council District 34), diving into their experience thus far on what it’s like to be young, fun, and run. The discussion will move across the positives, the negatives, and also the ‘I wish I had knowns,’ providing attendees with insights into the process and to take with them should they consider a run for public office.
