We hosted two videos showing of the movie Unplanned. Since the lockdown and gradual reopening, we spoke at six Open Up Massachusetts rallies. Rev. Craft, Tom Moor, Rich Howell spoke at the annual Flag Day-Second Amendment Rally in Central Massachusetts. In August and September, we had ten speaking engagements in Maine including Rev. Craft as the keynote speaker at a rally in Houlton. Rev. Craft and I spoke to a group in Douglas, MA hosted by State Senator Ryan Fatman. We hosted well-attended barbecues at the Lane House in Lexington on Independence Day, and Labor Day Weekend. Rev.

Camp Constitution Press: We reprinted And Not a Shot if Fired. We published Sam Blumenfeld’s School-Induced Dyslexia and How It Deforms a Child’s Brain, reprinted Negroes in a Soviet America and American Negro Problems. These were Communist Party pamphlets that were reprinted by Patriot groups in the 1950s and 1960s to show how the Communists were promoting race hatred.
