Can a phoenix rise from the ashes of the two-party system or will the No Labels effort lead to four more years of Donald Trump? Discover in this seminar if America is ready to elect a President outside the Republican-Democrat duopoly.  

GUEST: Ryan Clancy, Chief Strategist for No Labels, will join Resident Fellow, Congressman Will Hurd, in-person, for the February 20 session.

Ryan Clancy is chief strategist for No Labels, where he leads the development of policy and communications for the organization. He has worked closely with No Labels’ senior leadership since 2011 to chart both the strategic direction and message of the organization. He is also the co-author of No Labels’ Ultimate Guide to the 2020 Election and the Common Sense policy playbook released in 2023.

Ryan has helped some of the world’s most respected leaders and organizations tell their story: serving as a speechwriter for cabinet officials in Washington, DC; ghostwriting books; developing corporate narratives and executive positioning plans for Fortune 500 companies and CEOs and investor pitches for start-up companies and entrepreneurs; and advising political reform groups and candidates on all facets of communications strategy.
