If you throw a rock into water it sinks; if you throw a stick into water it floats; if you throw a man into water he must decide whether to sink or swim.
– Ludwig von Mises
Justin Longo is affectionately called “Media Monkey” around the Independence Institute offices for his many roles in all things media. He makes sure that all the good work Independence does gets out to the public, the press, and elected officials. That includes sending out communications like newsletters, event invitations, and press releases, while updating I.I.’s websites with the latest and greatest policy content coming from the policy centers. In addition, he helps creates content as part of I.I.’s Creative Labs team via his role in video production and script writing.
Justin is also Editor of the news website CompleteColorado.com.
Finally, Justin co-founded the international libertarian drinking club, Liberty on the Rocks. If you want to meet other liberty-minded individuals who like to meet regularly at the bar, find a Liberty on the Rocks chapter near you! Justin runs the Denver chapter that meets at Choppers Sports Bar in Cherry Creek on the first and third Wednesday of every month.
