Central Florida to host 2017 RLC National Biennial Convention

Delegate Deadline: 2/26

As we recently announced, our national convention is set to be held this upcoming Memorial Day Weekend at the Rosen Centre in Orlando Florida. Per RLC bylaws, any and all members of the Republican Liberty Caucus are automatically permitted to be delegates representing their respective states (as long as it is already chartered) but must have their dues paid at least 90 days before the convention takes place. That deadline is approaching in just a few days so it is urgent that you join NOW at www.RLC.org/join

RLC Joins the 1st Amendment Alliance

On October 1, the congressional deadline to prevent the IRS from trampling over the free-speech rights of nonprofits will expire. In early August, the Tax Revolution Institute (TRI) — a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that promotes “justice and integrity in the tax system” — launched the First Amendment Alliance (1AA): a nonpartisan effort to protect the free-speech rights of nonprofits. The Alliance now has over 50 groups that represent every segment of the political spectrum and civil society.
