WASHINGTON, D.C — In this new role with the Consumer Choice Center, Stephen Kent will work to strengthen the CCC’s media presence in North America, the EU and Asia, with an additional focus on government affairs and coalitions in Washington, D.C. He’ll advance its campaigns: Fit For Growth, Lifestyle Choice and Tech Innovation.
The CCC has notched significant wins for consumers in 100+ countries and tracks regulatory trends in Washington, Brussels, Ottawa, Brasilia, London, Geneva.
We’ve played a key role in the rolling back of Canada’s harmful excise tax on non-alcoholic beer, onerous professional licensing in Brazil, vaping flavor bans in several US states, and the protection of streaming content from new limits in Mexico.
- “Bringing Stephen on to advocate on behalf of consumers is a huge victory. As a marketing whiz, former TV host, and published author, as well as someone with significant experience placing writers and commentators into media we are thrilled to welcome Stephen into the fold of consumer choice advocates in the U.S. and beyond,” said Consumer Choice Center Deputy Director Yaël Ossowski.
Some points about Stephen Kent:
- Stephen Kent comes to the Consumer Choice Center with nearly a decade of experience advocating for individual liberty including as the Spokesperson for Young Voices, where he trained countless young writers and policy analysts in the trade of communications and public speaking.
- He has been published in USA Today, Washington Examiner, Reason Magazine, RealClearPolitics, Charlotte Observer, Raleigh News & Observer, The Federalist, The American Conservative, The American Spectator and seen on Fox News, Fox Business, Cheddar News, Al Jazeera & more.
- Kent was previously the host of Al Jazeera’s 2021 program, Right Now with Stephen Kent, a YouTube program for political talk and influencer interviews. He is the author of How The Force Can Fix The World: Lessons on Life, Liberty & Happiness from a Galaxy Far, Far Away (Hachette / Center Street), the definitive book on the relevance of Star Wars to contemporary politics during a time of populist movements worldwide.
CCC is a consumer advocacy group supporting lifestyle freedom, innovation, privacy, science, and consumer choice. Regulators on local, national, and supranational levels keep regulating more and more areas of consumers’ lives. This leads to less consumer choice and makes products more expensive. We empower consumers to raise their voice in media, online, on the streets and facilitate activism toward a more empowered consumer in North America, Central and South America, the EU, Asia and Africa.
