Those of you following my inauguration twitter updates will have noticed my increasing frustration and anger in my attempt to attend the Inaugural Youth Ball. Overall the Inauguration was an amazing experience and worth most of the pain and hassle, but the Youth Ball was one of the most poorly organized events I’ve ever been to, and it was insulting to the young people that powered this campaign that they would be treated so poorly:

  • oversold event
  • stranded in 20-degree weather for hours in formal wear
  • no explanation, apologies or restitution

As a way of helping tell the story of this failure and venting my own feelings, I put together this 8 minute documentary. If you know someone what was screwed by this dangerous organizational failure, please point them to our Facebook group and this video
