BCRWI Meeting: WalkAway Idaho

BCRWI Meeting: #WalkAway Idaho
The September General Meeting of the Bonner County Republican Women, Inc. will be held on September 17, 2019 at the Ponderay Events Center, 401 Bonner Mall Way, at 10:15 am. The speaker for this month is Brandon Ducharme from WalkAway Idaho, a state branch of the main WalkAway organization.
In 2018, Brandon Straka recorded a video describing all the reasons he’s walked away from the Democrat Party. A former liberal, Straka was mortified when Donald Trump won the presidency. As a gay man, he held preconceived notions about the Republican party. But as he plunged himself into videos and articles on the subject–specifically information that debunked everything he thought he knew about Donald Trump–a light bulb went off and he realized he’d been lied to for years. He was compelled to tell the world.
Straka’s video went viral, and soon grew into a movement that has attracted people from all walks of life who too have walked away from the party who no longer represents them. He’s held town halls in places like Harlem and Hollywood, places where the GOP traditionally doesn’t step foot. And he’s had tremendous success as his organization continues to grow. He even recently opened for a Trump rally in Ohio.
Our September meeting of the BCRWI will feature another Brandon–Brandon Ducharme–from WalkAway Idaho, a state branch of the main WalkAway organization. Brandon will be bringing along a couple of guests to speak with us about why the WalkAway message has resonated with so many and how we might harness its enthusiasm.
