What Conservatives Did to Pull Off Liberty Win in California
by Andrew Egger
“We’re going to have to turn especially and fight on all fronts, and that includes institutionally. We had a large institutional win in California.”California conservatives won a surprise victory this week, changing a state assembly bill that would have curtailed the freedom of private religious colleges.
“We literally were able to see tens of thousands of people mobilize to make calls and to write their legislators, and to participate in the political process,” William Jessup University President John Jackson told The Daily Signal in a phone interview.
“We were hearing from legislators who said that they had gotten hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of phone calls on just this one piece of legislation,” he added. “And I think that’s a tremendous, tremendous encouragement to me for the health of our state.”
It’s a victory that they hope will prove a bellwether for institutional liberty fights to come.
