Saint Louis, MO: Phyllis Schlafly, founder and chairman of Eagle Forum, announced the formation of a Texas chapter of Phyllis Schlafly’s Center for Protecting the Constitution. The Center was founded to fight the increasingly common misconception that the U.S. Constitution is outdated and needs to be changed.
“The Constitution is a miraculous document, written and ratified by extraordinary men, and nothing must be done to risk it,” said Phyllis Schlafly. “It should be protected, not changed, and any call for a new Constitutional Convention must be resisted.”
Schlafly announced that long-time activist Pat Carlson will serve as director of the Texas Center.
“I am proud to name Pat Carlson as Director of our Texas Center,” Schlafly said. “Pat is a tireless defender of our Constitution who combines intellect and political smarts to influence the debate in Texas.”
Phyllis Schlafly’s Centers for Protecting the Constitution will host events, educate citizens and leaders, and publish materials. The Centers are supported by Eagle Forum Education and Legal Defense Fund, a 501(c)(3) founded by Phyllis Schlafly over 35 years ago. All state centers receive support from the Fund to cover staff, printing and other related expenses. Each center will include leadership like Pat Carlson in Texas and there are plans to open centers in Utah, Tennessee, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania in the coming weeks.
