Join True Texas Project in welcoming a panel of legislative experts this fall as we prepare for the 88th Legislative Session in Texas! We are motivated by the new wave of activists that has been born out of the political turmoil of the last few years. As always, we strive to educate and motivate them to get involved, as we believe that is the ONLY way to cause a shift in the climate and direction of the greatest state on earth! Come and hear from Texans Uniting for Reform & Freedom, Texas Right to Life, Texans for Vaccine Choice, Texas Family Project, and Texas Gun Rights and see what you need to put on your radar for the next session!
We will also be hearing from Dr. Grant Ferguson, who has extensively researched the idea of Universal Basic Income, and is here to show us what his national surveys on the subject have concluded about where American citizens truly stand regarding this matter.

About Terri Hall:
Terri Hall, Founder & Director of the San Antonio Toll Party and Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom (Texas TURF) – Terri Hall founded the San Antonio TOLL Party in 2005 as a taxpayer revolt when she learned the Texas Dept of Transportation (TxDOT) was to convert her only access to San Antonio, Hwy 281, into a tollway, which is a double tax to charge taxpayers again for what they’ve already built and paid for. When she saw this shift to tolling our existing freeways happening nationwide, Terri started a statewide group called Texans Uniting for Reform and Freedom or Texas TURF in 2007. She’s a homeschool mom of ten turned citizen activist, and Terri has rallied her fellow Texans to stop this runaway taxation, as well as the Trans Texas Corridor-style foreign takeover of our public highways. Such monopolies over our infrastructure result in tolls over $3/mile to use our public roads. Terri has worked as a citizen activist in nine sessions of the Texas Legislature, spoken at rallies in Washington D.C., organized marches in Austin, spoken at national conferences, appeared on the Lou Dobbs Show, CNN’s American Morning, MSNBC and Fox News nationally, and done local radio & TV interviews all over Texas. She also wrote for the Examiner, was a citizen blogger for the San Antonio Express-News, and continues to have many columns published by news outlets nationwide. Texas TURF is an all-volunteer, all grassroots organization committed to defending property rights and our freedom to travel. They helped repeal the Trans Texas Corridor, defeated dozens of bad bills in the Legislature, advocated against the Left’s anti-car agenda, and passed protections against tolling existing roads among other reforms. She invites you to learn more and to join the fight at www.TexasTURF.org.

About Chris Hopper:
I am a 4th generation Texan. I attended Arlington Baptist University and Louisiana Baptist University and have have a Bachelors in Bible and Counseling. I have been married for 17 years to Ashleigh Hopper. We have 3 sons Landon (15), Evan (12), Jack (5). All the men in the house train in Jiujitsu. For 2 decades I served as student and missions pastor here in Texas. My wife and I have helped build 2 schools in Kenya, Africa where we are still heavily involved. We find great fulfillment in helping over 300 African children annually with medical care, education, and learning a trade with a Biblical worldview being the foundation. While continuing to teach and counsel at our local church, I have moved into the political world in order to make impact for the family. I have previously partnered with American Principles Project. APP is an organization designed, at the very core, to fight politicians who hurt the family and highlight and support those who help the family. I am currently working with Texas Family Project. The Texas Family Project wants to make the family the most powerful, well-represented force in Austin. Existing pro-family groups largely focus their efforts on education and tracking legislation, but TFP is interested in doing more to protect Texas families. TFP is activating pro-family forces across the state to take action and fight back against the Left’s anti-family extremism. The family is America’s paramount institution. But it is also the only institution without an effective political arm. At TFP, we envision fearlessly reforming how Texas’ government and its institutions view families, prioritize parental rights, and protect the innocence of children. We seek to fight against the Left’s anti-family extremist agenda by boldly defending family values and ensuring these values transcend all levels of government by electing unyielding lawmakers to represent the pro-family cavalry steadfast our state lawmakers preeminently hold these beliefs.
