Join us this month at True Texas Project – Travis County for a one-of-a-kind meeting! We will be hosting Matt Rinaldi and Mark Littlefield for a civil and educational discussion on the differences between the political “Right” and “Left”. If you or someone you know has always wondered “what is the difference?” or “why does it matter?” or maybe you think “it’s all the same in the end”, then we think this meeting is for you. We highly encourage people of all ages (especially the younger generation) to come and bring their family and friends for this night of learning and fun!
