FreedomWorks Kicks Off Lone Star Tour in Austin

On December 12, FreedomWorks was delighted to sponsor an evening event in Austin, Texas at the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

The meeting was the first in our Lone Star Tour, comprised of three such events in three days across Texas. The Austin event was hosted by the Austin Tea Party and New Revolution Now and organized by Dean Wright. Dean is the co-founder and director of New Revolution Now and an organizer of the Austin Tea Party. FreedomWorks Senior Fellow, Reverend C.L. Bryant, kicked off the meeting and was followed by Derrick Cohen with the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Derrick spoke about justice reform with a focus on efforts to reform civil asset forfeiture. He gave a recap of reform efforts during the last Texas legislative session and plans for the upcoming session. FreedomWorks and the Texas Public Policy Foundation are partners in justice reform efforts. I was pleased to share information about FreedomWorks; who we are, what we do, our signature initiatives and our upcoming action items.

A special thanks to Dean Wright for organizing this informative event.
