Turning Point Action Launches 2020 Expansion, Acquires ‘Students for Trump’
PHOENIX, July 2, 2019— Charlie Kirk, founder and president of the nation’s largest and fastest growing student organization, is officially expanding a sister 501(c)(4) organization, Turning Point Action, with the acquisition of “Students for Trump” along with all associated media assets.
Students for Trump will be the official chapter-based, pro-Trump student group on hundreds of college and high school campuses across America beginning this fall.
“It’s no question that freedom is on the ballot in 2020,” says Charlie Kirk, CEO of Turning Point Action. “I’ve spent the last six years traveling the country and speaking to young voters. Millennials and Generation Z want to run their own lives and make their own money. What we don’t want is insane, socialist and Marxist policies that our parents and grandparents risked, and many cases, lost their lives to defeat in their own generation. We’re proud to be at the forefront of the youth movement to re-elect freedom in 2020 by adding one million new voters to support four more years of President Trump.”
With this acquisition, Charlie Kirk becomes Chairman of Students for Trump, a project of Turning Point Action. Ryan Fournier will remain on as co-Chairman, continuing to build on the incredible success of 2016.
Students for Trump sets out to build the largest candidate-focused chapter program in the nation with a primary goal of reaching Division I universities. With local chapters as the backbone, the organization will hold large-scale rallies and events nationwide starting with the official fall “Launch Party” at the Palms Casino and Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada on Aug 23, 2019.
