Conservative activist and author to speak at Tax Day Rally in Bronson Park in downtown Kalamazoo
KALAMAZOO— Conservative political activist Phyllis Schlafly will be the keynote speaker here April 15 when Southwest Michigan Tea Party Patriots joins groups nationwide for a Tax Day Rally.
Schlafly, a constitutional attorney and author of 21 books as well as a weekly, syndicated column, is known nationally for her opposition to feminism and the Equal Rights Amendment.
Her speech will be part of a 5 p.m. rally in Bronson Park in downtown Kalamazoo that is scheduled to go on, rain or shine, according to Doug Till, a Tea Party Patriots spokesman.
The rally will be open to the public. There will be no admission charge.
“We expect to be one of hundreds of rallies planned on the deadline day for filing income taxes,” Till said. “All of the groups are connected by their support for lower taxes, smaller government and respect for the Constitution.”
Schlafly is president of the Eagle Forum and the Eagle Forum Education and Legal Defense Fund, headquartered in St. Louis, Mo.
Schlafly last visited Kalamazoo to speak at Kalamazoo College in 2007: Phyllis Schlafly Speech.
