And it begins!
Today marks the kick off of Turning Point USA’s First Annual High School Activist Conference! 75 students from around the country have landed in Chicago, Illinois to begin a week full of education, organization, and empowerment. From freshmen to seniors, TPUSA’s student activists are representing 25+ states.
Our opening session began with an explanation of Turning Point USA, as well as a meet and greet. Who are we? What do we stand for? Why is it important students get involved? The student activists were introduced to the tenants of TPUSA:
— Fiscal Responsibility
— Free Markets
— Limited Government
The students also got the opportunity to hear why Charlie Kirk began Turning Point USA and why their role at high schools across the U.S. is a vital one.
Our opening day ended with a fun filled cookout. The students had the opportunity to get to know each other and talk a little about their passion for politics. Regardless of age, background, or 2016 presidential pick, these student activists were excited to meet like-minded teens looking to improve our nation’s future. The upcoming week has many exciting planned events for these young adults, the best is yet to come!
