Kevin M. Levy joined The American Moderate in November, 2016 and is the editor-in-chief of Pushing Forward, the center-left component of The American Moderate network.
Mr. Levy joined The American Moderate as a staff writer after the historic loss of Hillary Clinton and quickly rose through the organization to become the executive editor of the group’s editorial staff. After The American Moderate adopted its current publication structure, Mr. Levy became the head of Pushing Forward. In his current role, he leads a small editorial board to solicit and polish opinion pieces along the center-of-left spectrum of politics.
He has interned for Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI-02) and Rep. Donald Norcross (NJ-01) in Washington, D.C. and also worked on the Kathleen Matthews for Congress campaign in Maryland’s 8th congressional district. He considers himself to be a pragmatic progressive who wants to get stuff done. He considers Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina to be his political role model and believes that the only way that Washington will be able to come together to fix America’s problem is through more bipartisan relationship building, which quite literally includes more regular drinking.
Currently pursuing a J.D. at Rutgers Law School in Camden, New Jersey, Mr. Levy has received two bachelor’s degrees from American University in international studies and Arab world studies with a minor in Arabic after studying abroad at the University of Haifa in Israel. In addition to his writing for The American Moderate, Mr. Levy has also been published in The Hill, The South Jersey Times, and the American University Undergraduate Research Journal Clocks and Clouds. He is a staff editor for the Rutgers Law Review in Camden, New Jersey. Mr. Levy is a lifetime resident of Washington Township, New Jersey.
