Turning Point USA recently held its first statewide meeting in Vermont and since has organized a University of Vermont chapter. It is a national student movement dedicated to identifying, organizing, and empowering young people to promote the principles of free markets and limited government, according to www.charliekirk.com. With a presence on over 2,000 high school and college campuses nationwide, 250,000 student members, and over 450 full- and part-time staff, Turning Point USA is the largest and fastest-growing conservative youth activist organization in the country. Kirk, 28, has appeared on CNBC, Fox News, and FOX Business News over 1,000 times, and is a columnist at Newsweek. His writings can be seen in Fox News, The Hill, RealClearPolitics, The Washington Times, Breitbart, American Greatness, and Daily Caller.

Kirk was named to the Forbes “30 under 30” list, was the youngest speaker at the 2016 Republican National Convention, and opened the RNC as the first speaker in 2020. He’s the author of three books including the #1 Amazon and New York Times bestseller, “The MAGA Doctrine: The Only Ideas that Will Win the Future” from Broadside Books, an imprint of Harper Collins.

In 2019, Kirk was granted an honorary doctorate from Liberty University citing his exceptional leadership and energetic voice for conservatives. Later that year, Charlie co-founded The Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty, a Christian think tank at Liberty University working to expand religious freedom and advance conservative principles in the public sphere.

His social media reaches over 100 million people per month and according to Axios, he is one of the “top 10 most engaged” Twitter handles in the world behind only President Trump among conservatives. Charlie is the host of “The Charlie Kirk Show” podcast, which regularly ranks among the top 10 news shows on Apple podcast charts, and as of October 2020, Charlie became the host of the new, nationally syndicated daily radio show by the same name broadcasting on the Salem Radio Network live from 12 – 3 PM ET.
