Our Annual Champions of Freedom Awards Dinner Sells Out Every Year!

Please avoid disappointment by reserving your VIP table now.

Can’t attend but appreciate what we do?
Please donate to continue our work.

We humbly ask you to support our work with your financial support for this dinner.  This is a long election year, and the next legislative session is ahead.

This dinner is how we fund our major projects and our statewide Texas Conservative Grassroots Coalition.

We do not spend money on salaries or paid lobbyists.  We do not stay in lavish hotels, jet around the country, eat at high dollar restaurants, or buy tables at other events with your donations.  Instead, my husband and I support other conservative groups by making a personal donation in the name of Grassroots America.

We are the largest all volunteer-led conservative citizen action organization in Texas. Our Board of Directors serve with no pay.  96% of our donations go toward achieving our mission.  The other 4% goes to meet legal compliance.

All of our legislative action and transparency tools are free to every citizen and group to use.  They are not and never will be located behind a pay wall as long as I am the executive director. 

We will launch an even more powerful GrassrootsPriorities 2.0 for the 89th Texas Legislative Session.  We will help lead the fight to pass key legislative priorities.  But first, we intend to turn out the vote to fire the Occupier and restore the rule of law in this nation. 

So, please help us. Sponsorship table levels can be found at the “Reserve Your Sponsor Table” link below.  Help us “sell out” this event early!

Fighting for the Liberty our Founders intended,

JoAnn Fleming
Executive Director
