This month at TTP – Denton County, we are hosting Dr. Brooks McKenzie, an expert in child development and family court systems. Many of you have asked for us to host speakers on this topic, and we have finally found the right person for the job! Dr. Brooks McKenzie will give us insight into the current state of the Texas judicial system. He will also touch on how we can be supporting the nuclear family and 50/50 parental rights. Join us in learning about this critically important topic.
We will also be hearing from Wes Virdell, Texas State Director of Gun Owners of America, about a new Second Amendment Hunters group that they are forming!

As a researcher and former Assistant Director for the TCU Institute of Child Development, Dr. Brooks McKenzie has worked with at-risk children and families for more than 16 years, always advocating for the “best interest of the child” in all circumstances.
Born and raised in Texas, Dr. McKenzie has spent his entire professional career presenting the body of empirical research in Developmental Psychology to agencies and organizations that are tasked with supporting children and families. He has trained DFPS/CPS, attorneys and judges, and worked directly with non-profits and the families they serve, only to find a systemic ignorance/apathy that has been actively harming our children for decades.
Texas has utterly failed to protect one of our most vulnerable populations and it has to stop. Texas has for decades lagged behind the rest of the Nation in addressing the needs of our families and children. Dr. McKenzie has devoted his time and passion to effecting change in a system that is destroying our nuclear families and damaging our children for a lifespan. Our legislators and judiciary must be reformed, otherwise our children and families are doomed.
