Memphis, TN — A group of GRA Board Members travelled out to the banks of the Mississippi River near Elvi’s old home town this week to conduct an outreach at the 2023 FreedomFest. GRA & NFRA President Alex Johnson, junior GRA NFRA Director Catherine Bernard, senior GRA NFRA Director Nathaniel Darnell, GRA 3rd Vice President Abigail Darnell, and Fulton RA chapter President Nick Cooper served as the volunteers in the outreach.
In addition to hosting a table in the Vendor Hall of the event, the GRA NFRA Director and attorney Catherine Bernard participated as a speaker in one of the sessions, performing a mock trial opposite presidential candidate Larry Elder. At one point in the trial, she cross examined Jim Geraghty, the Senior Political Correspondent for National Review.
The FreedomFest drew an ecclectic collection of speakers and attendees from around the country, including such notables as Steve Forbes of Forbes Magazine and presidential candidates Vivek Ramaswamy and Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
