YLD Volunteer Spotlight
Ryan Thurber, Polsinelli PC
Name one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you.
I've only broken one bone (so far, knock on wood). In keeping with the Colorado spirit of engaging in extreme sports and other adventurous outdoor activities, I was playing tetherball.
What's your favorite moment about volunteering with the YLD Special Projects Team?
The 2018 Election Call Center. My favorite CLC activities are always those where we have the opportunity to conduct public education and outreach, because I believe a shared community understanding of our legal system and values is of the utmost importance - particularly in our current era of misinformation and hyper-partisanship.
The call center was an opportunity not only to provide important information to the public about voting rights and process, but also to work alongside a group of highly-committed volunteers with these same goals in mind. Can't wait to do it all over again in a couple years!
