I wanted to take a moment to share some of the highlights from American Principles Project’s 3rd annual ‘Red, White and Blue Gala’ and our first-ever State Lunch in Washington, D.C. last week.
This year we held our first-ever State Lunch, which focused on Common Core and featured Governor Bobby Jindal (R-Louisiana) as the keynote speaker.
At the State Lunch, Governor Jindal spoke substantively about Common Core, federal overreach, and how the government is taking power away from parents and teachers and empowering bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. You can watch his full presentation here:
That evening, we welcomed over 350 people to our 3rd annual ‘Red, White and Blue Gala’, not to mention over 70 reporters and 30 media outlets, making it our most successful Gala to date.
The keynote speaker for the evening was Governor Rick Perry (R-Texas), and actress and former Miss USA Ali Landry was featured as the Master of Ceremonies. The evening also featured short presentations from our founder Professor Robert George, actor Eduardo Verastegui, Delaware RNC Committeewoman Ellen Barrosse and more.

Thank you for your support over the past year and we look forward to keeping you updated on our work over the next year, especially as we head towards the critical 2016 presidential election.
