Join True Texas Project in welcoming a panel of legislative experts this fall as we prepare for the 88th Legislative Session in Texas! We will take a look at the Republican Party of Texas’ platform and planks, elected representatives to support and/or watch out for, and finally, the bills being put forward that we need to be aware of.

About Ashley Leenerts:
Ashley Leenerts grew up believing that all life was sacred, but after graduating college in 2019 she became increasingly aware of the enormous injustice preborn babies and pregnant women in our nation face. The real eye opening moment for her was when one of her little sisters faced an unexpected pregnancy. She was out of touch with our family, but needed tangible assistance, and our local pregnancy resource center was there for her and my sweet nephew. She has no doubt the center’s support is one of the main reasons her sister chose Life. After this experience Ashley began volunteering at her local pregnancy resource center and wanted to make her life’s work standing for innocent human Life, as this center’s volunteers had for her nephew and sister. In the fall of 2020 Ashley joined Texas Right to Life as a legislative associate and has since been serving with the legislative team to advocate for impactful life-saving legislation at the Texas capitol and across the state through the Sanctuary City for the Unborn movement.
About Christine Welborn:
A fierce advocate for liberty, Christine has been working in politics since 2014. She assisted some of the most conservative candidates in Texas and also helped lead statewide election integrity initiatives that unearthed voter fraud and put people in jail. During this time she was volunteering for TFVC advancing crucial medical freedom and vaccine choice policy. Volunteering grew into serving on the TFVC PAC Advisory Board and then on the TFVC Board of Directors. Recently, she has taken on the role of Executive Director of TFVC. Christine brings political experience and a heart for those facing mandates. Drawing strength from her faith and her husband, James, Christine will stand strong for the rights of Texans and hold all elected officials in Texas accountable to the people they serve.
About Bethany Young:
After working for conservative causes in D.C., Bethany Young moved to Texas to fight the swamp monsters in Austin.
After joining TXGR as Legislative Director in 2020, Bethany has been working in the trenches of the Texas Capitol fighting to defend and restore every law-abiding Texans’ right to keep and bear arms.
Notably, Bethany was instrumental in mobilizing TXGR members and supporters from across the state to ensure the passage of Constitutional Carry in 2021.
Bethany lives in Kyle, Texas with her husband Barrett and their dogs Saxon and Thatcher and cats Cersei and Maddox.
Bethany’s favorite firearms are the Barrett M107 .50 caliber rifle and her Colt Python.
