Houston Christmas Eve Meeting Press Release

Freedom Movement Welcomed in Houston
Houston, December 19 - The Free State Project, brainchild of Libertarian Jason Sorens (26, political science doctoral candidate at Yale University) is a plan to enlist 20,000 "liberty-oriented individuals" to move to a state, where they could reform everything from criminal codes to tax structure.
Since its founding in September 2001, the Free State Project has blossomed into a full-fledged freedom movement with more than 2,000 members from across the US and World. Local groups have been organizing, and Sorens will be speaking at a local meeting in Houston on Tuesday, December 24th to promote the Free State Project to area libertarians and to answer questions about the progress and goals of the Free State Project.
Sorens graduated from St. Thomas' Episcopal School in Houston and is looking forward to returning to his hometown. "There is a strong movement in favor of individual rights and free markets in the Houston area," says Sorens. "It's no surprise that the Houston chapter of the Free State Project is one of our most enthusiastic and active groups."
The Free State Project was founded out of disappointment with the libertarian movement's long-term lack of progress at the national level. According to research published on the group's website, 20,000 political activists could win statewide majorities in several low-population states around the country.
The group is planning to meet at noon at Escalante's (Meyerland) restaurant. For more information on the Free State Project, see the website at www.freestateproject.org.
