Bryson Davis is the coalitions coordinator and data specialist for the Virginia Institute for Public Policy, an independent, nonpartisan, education and research organization that develops and promotes public policy consistent with the Virginia tradition of individual liberty, dynamic entrepreneurial capitalism, private property, the rule of law, and constitutionally-limited government.
Originally from Portland, Oregon, Bryson saw firsthand the impact public policy can have on communities, states, and the nation. As a result, he has developed a passion for promoting constitutional government and empowering citizens to become more engaged and educated.
Prior to joining the Virginia Institute, Bryson co-founded and presided over one of the largest Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapters in the western United States. He also served as an engagement coordinator for a state-based think-tank, as well as a regional coordinator for a statewide political campaign.
As coalitions coordinator, his responsibilities include collecting and managing the data of volunteers involved in the Institute’s various coalitions and network, coordinating the team’s coalition support specialists, and representing the Institute and its coalitions at external events.
Having been a YAF chapter president and heavily involved in other similar student programs while in college, Bryson is bringing his experience and leadership in student engagement, as well as his reverence for the U.S. Constitution, to the table as the Institute develops its Young Constitutional Scholars Society – a network and platform to unite the countless organizations that are all working to educate America’s youth on the importance of the U.S. Constitution.
In his free time, Bryson is currently pursuing a professional certification in software development through an online technology bootcamp. When not working or studying, he enjoys reading, playing sports, and spending time with family and friends.
Bryson joined the Virginia Institute team in 2022.
