A lot. So many in fact, that I couldn't fit them all in this press mention round-up.
This was an exhilarating, historic week and PolicyMic couldn't be prouder of its community for the insightful coverage and analysis that poured in on SCOTUS decisions, the epic Wendy Davis filibuster, and everything in between. It's also been a tremendous few weeks for PolicyMic-ers to shine in media outlets across the nation. We are truly amazed (but not the least bit surprised) at how many of our writers have been featured, mentioned, and re-tweeted by other news outlets lately.
To echo the incomparable Sam Meier, thank you to the PolicyMic community for all that you do. You make us believe in what we know to be true about millennials.
Below is just a sampling of the places our pundits were mentioned in the past few weeks. Congrats to ALL our writers who've been highlighted in other media outlets!
1. Sarah Galo, Salon (June 12)
Sarah's excellent piece on the modern relevance of Sylvia Plath's "The Bell Jar" ran on Salon. The article touched on why millennials can still relate to Plath's protagonist, who navigates the murky waters at the verge of adulthood.

Jared Milrad was outside the steps of the Supreme Court of the United States, and quoted in a New York Times article just moments after DOMA was struck down.
