“It is an honor to kick off our second annual FreedomStand event and have Charlie Kirk join us again in the Treasure Valley,” said Tracey Koellisch, Co-founder of FreedomStand USA, Inc. and Founder of Eagle Conservatives. “Now more than ever, Freedom is under assault. Suppression of speech, social tyranny, and unjust mandates are paving the way to destroy American values and the loss of our God-given freedoms.” FreedomStand is where we exchange ideas and contend for these values in the public square,” Koellisch said.
“Last year, the conference brought together nearly 800 attendees who gathered in the midst of a global Pandemic to take back their rights to assemble,” said Winston Sanders, Founder of COPAC. “Not much has changed in the past year, we continue to see corporate and government overreach at new levels that undermine the very liberties our Founders sought to protect in the Constitution.” Sanders added. Several speakers last year included Pastor Rob McCoy, a California pastor at Calvary Chapel Godspeak in Thousand Oaks, whose church was fined and under threat of closure by government officials. McCoy spoke about the need to stand and defend our rights to worship. Idaho legislators also joined and spoke about their concerns with the mandates and government overreach. Charlie Kirk was the event’s keynote speaker in 2020, whose message centered around the need to take a stand and defend our American values, the Constitution, and stop government overreach.
This year’s conference will be a gathering of those who recognize that our freedoms come from God and not man. We will be joined by pastors and elected leaders seeking God in prayer and repentance for revival and national restoration” said Sanders. The Congressional Prayer Caucus and National Prayer USA are also joining in support of the event. “We recognize that the spiritual health of our nation is directly proportional to the decline of our values,” said Koellisch. Charlie Kirk continues to be a leading voice in the conservative movement who understands the threat of the secular progressive movement and cultural Marxism, and how those ideologies conflict with Judeo-Christian values and American exceptionalism. We are in the midst of a culture war and Charlie Kirk stands at the forefront of this battle on college campuses across the US. We are honored to have Charlie join us again for our FreedomStand 2021 event.
