Mark Meckler and Jenny Beth Martin: Tea Party Patriots Seeking a Second Revolution

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED

Co-founders and National Coordinators, Tea Party Patriots; Co-authors, Tea Party Patriots: The Second American Revolution

In 2009, an unemployed mother of two and a politically inexperienced California attorney met on a conference call that would result in one of the largest and most controversial political organizations in the U.S., the Tea Party Patriots. Promoting the basic principles of the Tea Party Movement — free markets, limited government, and fiscal responsibility — the Tea Party Patriots first turned heads by organizing citizen opposition against health-care reform in 2009. Party founders Meckler and Martin have been on the national radar ever since. The pair seek to explain how the Tea Party evolved, what the party is and what it is not, and the movement’s detailed plan to change the country. Are we in the midst of another American Revolution? Join us and decide for yourself.
