Back in March, we watched this clip of a college student being interviewed by Tucker Carlson.
We were so impressed with this guy that we immediately booked him to speak to NETTP at our June meeting on indoctrination in colleges. Unfortunately, shortly after that, he joined the service and has left for basic training! So we found someone even better -- our own Taylor Date! Taylor is the daughter of NETTP Steering Committee members Trish and Bob Date (they also are the ones who register you at every NETTP meeting, and Trish is my assistant). Taylor attends College, and she has agreed to share with us her personal testimony about the struggles she's encountered right here in Tarrant County. Yeah, it happens not only in the Northeast or on the West coast, but here in Texas too.
After hearing from Taylor, we'll cast a broader net and hear what's going on in the colleges and universities all over Texas. Our featured speaker is Tom Lindsay of the Texas Public Policy Foundation. You can read his bio below. We're very excited to have him covering this topic for us!
Where did you graduate from? Do you donate to your alma mater? Do you know what they are doing with that money? You may be surprised. Your taxes are contributing as well. Come hear what's going on... and what you can do about it.
But wait -- there's more! We also have Robert Kuykendall with us! Robert will tell us about Second Vote. Your second vote is how you vote with your pocketbook. This organization makes it easy to know what companies will use your own money against you, and which ones won't.

About Robert Kuykendall:
Robert serves as the Director of Communications for SecondVote.
If you’re like a lot of us, you cast your first vote in an election every couple of years, and wonder if you’re making a difference. Whether you know it or not, you’re casting a vote every day and making a difference, sometimes in support of causes and issues that you would never support on your own. That’s where 2ndVote comes in --The Conservative Watchdog for Corporate Activism.
Launched in 2013 upon learning that March of Dimes donations were being funneled to Planned Parenthood, Dr. David L. Black, a scientist by trade, became curious to know what other liberal organizations were being funded by consumer spending and donations. Our founder would never fund or vote for Planned Parenthood with his 1st vote at the ballot box, and therefore neither did he want to with his “2ndVote” through everyday spending and giving.
As the conservative watchdog for corporate activism, 2ndVote exposes the corporations and organizations funding liberal advocacy. By putting big business on watch through our extensive research on the most important issues of the day, our mission is to expose the corporate influence on matters of culture and policy and turn the tide on the attacks on conservative values and principles.
