Press Release

Hundreds to Attend FreedomWorks’ Minority Outreach Panel in Chicago

A candid discussion on how individuals can empower local communities towards real progress without government

WHAT: As part of FreedomWorks’ ongoing Empower campaign, Outreach Director Deneen Borelli and Reverend C.L. Bryant will join prominent leaders in the black community to host a candid discussion on how prosperity through free-market policies can reduce poverty and empower communities. Topics will include local issues that directly affect Chicago families, from education to energy prices. The panel will be followed by a Q&A session from the audience members.

WHO: Members of the panel will include FreedomWorks Outreach Director, Deneen Borelli; FreedomWorks Senior Fellow and former NAACP chapter president, Rev. CL Bryant; Senior Pastor at New Zion Covenant Church, Bishop Lance Davis; Congressional Candidate in IL-02, Dr. Eric Wallace; and Director of African American Male Resource Center at Chicago State University, Kwesi Ronald E. Harris.

WHEN: Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 6:00-8:00pm CT. Doors open at 5:30pm.

WHERE: New Zion Covenant Church, 14200 Chicago Road, Dolton, IL 60419.

WHY:FreedomWorks’ Empower campaign is an outreach program to educate individuals of all races, colors and creeds on issues of economic empowerment, and the many benefits individual liberty and free-market policies can have on families and communities across America.

Black urban communities, such as Chicago, are plagued with high unemployment, failing public schools, and crime. Since liberal policies have failed to help the black community, now is the time to seek fresh alternatives that can reverse the downward social and economic spiral by empowering individuals to be self-reliant. It’s time for real change- not fake promises.
