St. Louis, MO: Conservative political leader Ralph Reed will be a featured speaker at the upcoming Eagle Council XLVII leadership conference in St. Louis on September 14-16, 2018. Reed is the Founder and Chairman of the Faith & Freedom Coalition.
"Ralph Reed is one of the great giants of the conservative movement," said Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly Eagles. "We are excited that he is joining us for Eagle Council. From his time as the founding executive director of the Christian Coalition, the founder of the Faith & Freedom Coalition, or his many accomplishments advising presidential campaigns, Ralph Reed’s conservative activist bona fides are solid!
"Particularly, we are grateful to him for his love for and support of Phyllis Schlafly for many years. She counted him a great asset to conservatism and to her Eagles. We remember kindly his honoring of Phyllis both at her final Life of the Party luncheon at the Cleveland GOP Convention in 2016 and the memorial service later that year celebrating her legacy after she passed away in September 2016."
Martin concluded: "Ralph Reed is an impressive strategist and motivator! We are thrilled to welcome him to the Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Council XLVII lineup."
