Activist of the Month - Toby Marie Walker





Name: Toby Marie Walker
Hometown: Waco, TX

Toby Marie Walker wasn't very involved in politics until she saw out-of-control spending policies like TARP, the bailouts, and the stimulus. When she noticed that other Americans were just as outraged by these policies as she was, she took action. In February 2009, Toby co-founded the Waco Tea Party in Waco, Texas, of which she is currently president.

Since then, Toby has been a valuable partner with Americans for Prosperity in organizing and mobilizing other grassroots activists to stand against wasteful government spending and encroachment on individual liberty. She was a leader in the fights against ObamaCare and cap-and-trade, and is now leading AFP's November is Coming initiative in part of Texas. Toby has also been recognized nationally for her leadership in the Tea Party. She gave the opening remarks at last year's 9-12 rally in Washington, D.C. and was featured in a New York Times article about the Tea Party movement.

Toby draws upon her 20 years of experience in business marketing and sales management to help her be successful in grassroots activism. She lives in Waco, Texas with her husband and two dogs, and is the mother of two full-grown children.
