  • Steven Greenhut, author, journalist, Director of the Pacific Research Institute’s Journalism Center, and among the best-known Libertarian activists in California, along with candidate and nationally-known activist Steve Kubby will present incisive observations about why the Libertarian Party of California must focus on local issues and support candidates for local offices.

  • Steve Kubby, well-known national and local candidate and activist, will present his observations for advancing liberty after the defeat of California’s Proposition 19, the marijuana legalization proposition.

  • Richard Winger, nationally respected ballot access authority and publisher of Ballot Access News, will offer his keen insights into what our Party needs to do to succeed under the restrictive Top-two balloting system that Proposition 14 established in California.

  • John Stagliano, long-time libertarian activist and amazingly colorful entertainment entrepreneur, will tell us about his recent First Amendment triumph in his court trial against seven counts of obscenity.

  • Tad Lumpkin and Harold Uhl, up-and-coming libertarian activists in the realm of digital entertainment, will present their fast-paced, laugh-filled, and deadly serious expose of the Federal Reserve, The American Dream .

  • Carlos Rodriguez, a Cuban refugee and immigration lawyer in California’s San Fernando Valley, will share his insights into mobilizing our state’s (and the nation’s) growing Latino Libertarian community, and introduce us to the national organization Libertariaos in America .
