Profiles in Independence:Madisyn Stogsdill • Kansas City, Kansas(originally posted in The Hub, online newsletter of Independent Voting)---My name is Madisyn Stogsdill, a sixteen-year old, pre-registered Independent residing in Kansas. What introduced me to such a life changing political identity, as well as organization, was the hatred bred within the political hemisphere. As the Founder and President of my own nonpartisan organization by the name of Project Patriarchy, consisting of 100+ members across 15+ countries, I've learned of the value in listening to all opinions!

As not only a Spokesperson but also member of its Organizing Committee, I've found solace among this organization that is helping all to be heard -- regardless of a party.---If you would like to submit a profile on why you're an independent, send 100-150 words with a photo of yourself to [email protected] ...
