My goal is to participate in effective and respectful conversation that promotes democracy and open mindedness. The United States has long been a victim of party and identity politics, with only a select few being able to break the mold and work with different minded people. I hope to create another vibrant platform for open discussion, without censorship or persecution. A world in which education, communication, compassion and understanding are valued is a world that will know peace and prosper.

Profile Picture
Allan M. Cogan, B.A.

Born January 21, 1994 in West Allis, WI – I have lived in the Milwaukee area all my life with strong roots in Mississippi from my paternal side. Growing up, I had the pleasure of experiencing a mixed culture of Southern and Northern values that has helped shape my understanding and respect for different perspectives. I am an avid bowler and love to work out via running and lifting. And am up nearly everyday to start my day off right in the gym.

I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science with an emphasis in Constitutional Law in 2016 from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and am currently working towards a Master’s Degree in Education Policy and Community engagement. I have always believed that education and a communicative community is the backbone of a successful society – I hope to take part in a national and international discussion that promotes public service and open discussion.
