Corie Whalen Stephens has been a dedicated liberty advocate for nearly a decade. At twenty, she got involved with Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in Boston, Massachusetts. Rising as a young activist, Corie was a lead organizer of the Boston Tea Party Freedom Rally, an event held at Faneuil Hall in conjunction with the original grassroots money bomb for Ron Paul’s presidential campaign in December of 2007. This event featured future presidential candidate Rand Paul as a keynote speaker, and helped lay the groundwork for his soon-to-be Senate race.
Continuing her activism, Corie became the President of the College Republicans at Simmons College, and joined the Massachusetts Alliance of College Republicans’ board as the Director of the Conservative Women’s Caucus. In her senior year, Corie organized the Boston Tea Party Rally in April of 2009. Upon graduation, Corie joined the American Liberty Tour as a featured speaker for a coast-to-coast excursion that included dozens of rallies. Soon after, she became the National Secretary of the Republican Liberty Caucus.
In 2010, Corie accepted a job with American Majority, and relocated to Houston, Texas. In that capacity, she trained hundreds of grassroots activists. The next year, Corie became Young Americans For Liberty’s South Central Regional Director, helping students organize on their campuses. She also worked as Political Director for the Alliance for Self-Governance, a non-profit dedicated to ensuring participation in primary elections. Corie formerly served on the board of the Houston Young Republicans as Outreach Director, and remains an active member of the organization.
In 2013, Corie became the Spokesperson for Generation Opportunity, a youth advocacy organization dedicated to economic and personal freedom. In that role, Corie sounded the alarm on the reckless behavior of the Washington elite, speaking and writing about how too many of their unjust policies amount to generational theft. Recently, Corie started her own firm CWS Consulting, specializing in political communications, outreach, and persuasion. Clients include candidates, non-profits, publications, and political action committees.
