Join FreedomWorks & local tea party groups in Houston on Saturday, July 16th!

Grassroots America:

You are invited to an upcoming FreedomWorks event in Houston a week from this coming Saturday. Freedomworks is joining with the Houston Tea Party Society and other local groups for a full day-long grassroots training seminar at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Houston on Saturday, July 16th. Our great speakers will talk strategy and tactics for the 2012 elections, provide FreedomConnector training, and will provide great networking opportunities for all attendees. We are calling this event “Saddle Up Texas,” since we are getting ready to launch the next wave of our movement: electing a true conservative to the U.S. Senate from Texas and replacing Barack Obama in 2012.

FreedomWorks believes that government goes to those that show up. We believe that our freedom movement must grow, evolve and take our activism to the next level in 2012. Please join us for a full day of strategy, tactics, training and networking. It’s only $10 per person to attend the entire seminar, and you can bring cash or a check at the door.

This is a great opportunity to network and meet like-minded freedom-loving people in the Houston area. Below is the tentative agenda, which will be updated on FreedomConnector as we get closer to the event. Feel free to reply if you have questions about the event or if you would like to meet up with us the next time we are in your part of the state.
