St. Louis, MO: On Wednesday, an annual dinner will be held in Washington D.C. to honor the late Paul Weyrich, a warrior of the conservative movement. This year, the Paul Weyrich Award will be given to Paul’s dear friend Phyllis Schlafly, to honor her service and to recognize the 50th anniversary expanded edition of her book, A Choice Not An Echo.
“Phyllis Schlafly and the late Paul Weyrich were first and foremost great friends, so this would be reason enough to honor Phyllis,” said Colin Hanna of Let Freedom Ring. “They were two of the greatest allies in American conservatism, fighting side-by-side to make America better. Phyllis’s updated book A Choice Not An Echo recounts many of these fights and is a worthy focus of the dinner honoring Phyllis.”
“Paul Weyrich was a tremendous figure in the early conservative movement, and I am proud to have called him my friend,” Schlafly said. “It is truly an honor to receive an award that bears his name and I am thrilled that the dinner has chosen to highlight my updated A Choice Not An Echo for a new generation of conservatives to see. We are facing the very same battles today that Paul and I faced in the last fifty years.”
The annual Paul Weyrich Awards are meant to recognize those who have made major contributions to the cause of liberty.
