Event Description

The Freedom Forum on October 16 and 17 will integrate 3 events:

State Legislators from around the nation will come to Phoenix for a "Legislator Forum" to discuss State Rights on Friday morning. State Legislators can sign up for this event at
A "Tea Party" at the State Capitol is open to you and your families on Friday Evening. Come share in the patriotic music and listen to speakers who are there to entertain and educate. The Tea Party is a free event so bring the entire family and have some fun.
On Saturday, a "Patriot Forum" will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center. There is space available for any groups wanting to host their own display and brochures at this grassroots event. This all day event will include several speakers during the day. A keynote speaker will help provide the vision of how we can "Take America Back". The Patriot Forum will have a nominal $15 entry fee and tickets must be purchased in advance. Please go to Patriot Forum for a registration link to sign up for this conference and unique opportunity.

This event is bigger than we are and has taken a life of its own. To make this a success we need the assistance of your time, talents, money, and/or social network to keep the enthusiasm and momentum going. Please prayerfully consider helping in whatever way that still small voice inside leads you. We still have exhibitor booths, session speakers, and attendees to recruit over the next few weeks. If you would like to volunteer your time to setup or teardown, if you would like to sponsor an exhibit booth, if you can lead a 1 hour breakout session on a related topic, please contact the CCM Phoenix Chapter President, Robert Zuluaga, 602-692-8100, and let him know how you can help. It is only by awakening the sleeping giant called the silent majority that this event and the effort it is focused on can be a success. It is time to rally the troops, to call our legislators, to clarify what we believe in and the direction and path we expect them to guide this nation back to. If you can give financially, the ChipIn box to the right will go a long way to helping the cause and this event. Thank you so much for your generosity, your time, and your unwavering commitment to Take America Back.

To all members. Tickets for the Fredom Forum (Saturday) must be bought online with CCM,or at the Friday night Capitol Tea Party. No tickets will be sold at the Conv. Ctr. on Sat. morning. Robert has requested the Saturday Event be closed to the general public due to a rumored threat of SEIU members etc, attending to disrupt an otherwise peaceful, informative gathering.

Dear Friends of Freedom, Attendees, Exhibitors and Families,

"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
—Emma Lazarus, 1883
What happened to our land and the ability of “We the People” to live free?
See you there as we Take America Back into the hands of “We the People.”

Folks, the backers of this event need to see the commitment from everyone. They will determine Monday morning whether to invest additional funds (over $10,000) on an event that has so few patriots signing up. They need to see well over 500 people sign up before then to keep this event going. If you are not interested in this event do nothing and it will not happen. If you think this is an event worth having, including the tea party, please signup today so they can see we really want this to happen. You can signup for as many people as you need to. Just go to . If you would like to host a booth at the Patriot Forum, you can use this sponsorship page:

I know there will be a chance to gather more momentum at the Tea Party, but if there aren't 500 patriots signed up by Monday, it will be a mute point. There are only 25 patriots signed up right now so there is lots of ground to cover over the next 24 hours. Rally the team and let's make this a success.

Remember, for those who can, at lunch, we will march to the Az Rep. office(close by) to lend support to those who are protesting. Have signs handy and appropriate for the occasion.
Comment by Kelly Townsend on October 9, 2009 at 6:32am
Thank you to the financial contributors of this event! They have a massive need for funding, just for the audio visual alone, so for a really great presentation, they will definitely need help.
Comment by Jerry A. Stein(AKA VNVet52) on October 9, 2009 at 2:02am
I will attend on the 16th.
Comment by David Rall on October 8, 2009 at 9:46pm
An e-mail request was just sent to CCM Members encouraging them to sign up today for the Patriot Forum. They need to have at least 675 attendees to offset the cost of the convention center. If you are thinking of attending, please signup soon.
Comment by Rolda on October 8, 2009 at 8:54pm
Are we not protesting the AZ Republic afterwards? And is there a group going to protest Channel 12?
