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!

About Tracy Shannon:
Tracy Shannon is the mother of 4 blessings and a grandmother. She has studied what she calls the “neo-morality movement” for 20 years. Tracy’s family was profoundly impacted by the transgender movement many years ago, and that moved Tracy from the sidelines (merely protecting her own children from being inducted into “new” sexual mores) and onto the battlefront in the culture wars.
Tracy has taken on Drag Queen Story Hours in Texas and across the country. She exposed how libraries determined to introduce children to adult entertainers and transsexuals disregarded their own policies allowing sex offenders to be held out as role models to young children in taxpayer-funded public libraries. As the Texas Director for MassResistance, Tracy led Texas parents in pushing back against the debauched drag queen program for children as young as four. She has also contributed to research of the programs across the nation and helped parents in several states push back against this programming. Tracy has studied the trajectory of the transgender movement and transgender medicine for 20 years. She has observed a rise in children transitioning and a relaxing of the already loose and unsound “standards’ in transgender medicine. Tracy says, “The origins of sex change started with unethical research on children decades ago and has come full circle to the unethical treatment of minors with puberty blockers and cross-sex hormones.” Tracy had been a guest on American Family Radio and conservative media where she discusses the need for safeguarding children and the latest threats to traditional family values. Her personal experiences with the transgender issue as well as her investigative work has been published in conservative and Christian publications in the United States as well as abroad.
About Rebecca Parma:
Rebecca Parma is the Senior Legislative Associate at Texas Right to Life. She earned a Bachelor in Economics from Texas A&M University and her Master of Public Service and Administration from the Bush School of Government. Part of her master’s capstone project involved working in the Texas House of Representatives during the 84th Session of the Texas Legislature. After graduating, she moved to Washington, D.C., to work for Senator Ted Cruz and then for Congressman Gary Palmer from Alabama’s 6th district. Rebecca has worked for Texas Right to Life since June 2017.
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.
