Liberty and Virginia were two of the organizers for this TEA Party. Liberty is my cousin. You can read her blog here. Liberty spoke on several topics, including WHY politics matter to teens, and about signing a petition to do away with taxpayer-funded abortions. She delivered a very informative speech on the history of abortion and Planned Parenthood. Virginia enlightened the crowd on the truth about global warming and why policies centered on it are actually harming the communities they affect.
