Laura Ingraham to Highlight Freedom Foundation Annual Banquet

Freedom Foundation members and supporters will be treated to an evening with one of the nation’s most respected — and listened to — conservative voices at the organization’s 2019 annual banquet.

Nationally syndicated radio host and Fox News commentator Laura Ingraham has confirmed she will be the event’s keynote speaker on Sept. 21 at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency.

“We’re delighted and flattered to have someone of her stature share this special evening with us,” said Freedom Foundation CEO Tom McCabe. “Laura Ingraham has the ear of millions of Americans every day, and you earn that level of trust with an unrelenting commitment to honesty and credibility, combined with an infectious sense of humor.”

McCabe said Ingraham was keenly aware of the pervasive influence of stranglehold public-sector unions hold over the political process in this country, and of the Freedom Foundation’s work to ensure government workers’ First Amendment rights to opt out of union participation is respected.

“She shares our passion about this issue,” McCabe said, “and we fully expect it to be a central theme of her remarks.”

Since 2001, Ingraham has hosted the nationally syndicated radio show The Laura Ingraham Show, is the editor-in-chief of LifeZette and, beginning in October 2017, has been the host of The Ingraham Angle on Fox News Channel.

Ingraham worked as a speechwriter in the Reagan administration in the late 1980s. Afterwards she earned a law degree and subsequently went on to clerk in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York, and then for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
