Hollywood’s established political class does skew a bit older, but now one group is holding an event that could help make young Hollywood a bit more savvy.
A host of young producers, agents, writers and directors are expected at Falcon on Wednesday for a cocktail reception for the American Democracy Insitute, a non-partisan, non-profit group trying to get young professionals more active on issues.
ADI “connects individuals who will develop
initiatives, craft policies, launch programs, persuade the public, win
elections, organize activists, govern effectively, and implement
strategies that drive America toward their shared vision for the future.”
The featured speaker will be David Wilhelm, campaign manager of Clinton-Gore ’92.
The money raised from the event will fund a California summit at UCLA called “Empower Change” on Nov. 3.
Kevin Iwashina is among the co-hosts of the Falcon event, along with Polly Cohen, Yashar Hedayat, and Michael Kives, among others. Tickets are $250 for a VIP reception starting at 7 p.m., and $75 for the general program starting at 7:30 p.m.
