(This event has passed. Thanks to EVERYONE who joined us!)

Join us for the 2021 LPNC Convention in Greensboro June 18th-20th! We will gather at the Greensboro Shrine Club for a weekend of business, breakout sessions, and special speakers. Tickets will include all convention activities, plus a catered banquet on Saturday. We will have a Friday evening reception from 7 PM -11pm in the Comfort Inn hospitality room. We decided to do the convention on the weekend of Juneteenth, which is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.

This Juneteenth, let’s celebrate the freedom that was granted to the enslaved while also recognizing that the government’s policies have made life more difficult for people of color.  These policies continue today, and we need to make a push to change them drastically.

Jeremy "Spike" Cohen

Jeremy “Spike” Cohen was the Libertarian Party’s 2020 Vice-presidential nominee, running with Dr. Jo Jorgensen, the LP’s presidential nominee. He promotes a vision of common-sense Libertarian solutions that will make us all more free, safe, and prosperous. Cohen started a web design company in 1999. He retired from that 3 years ago to promote Libertarian ideas full time. His great aim is to make people more familiar with voluntary solutions and property rights. He is the host of My Fellow Americans, the co-host of The Muddied Waters of Freedom, and the co-owner of Muddied Waters Media, a podcast platform that reaches millions. Jeremy hosts two live programs every week, interacting with countless people across the political spectrum. This experience has convinced him more than ever that the Democrats and Republicans have both failed us. He works to end wars, free the innocent, and end the infringements that impede voluntary problem-solving.

Celebrate Juneteenth with us!

Juneteenth is a day of reflection, a day of renewal, a pride-filled day. It is a moment in time taken to appreciate the African American experience. It is inclusive of all races, ethnicities and nationalities - as nothing is more comforting than the hand of a friend.

Juneteenth serves symbolically, and in reality, as a reference point from which to measure and appreciate the progress and contributions made by African Americans to this society. Juneteenth is a day on which honor and respect is paid for the sufferings of slavery. It is a day on which we acknowledge the evils of slavery and its aftermath. On Juneteenth we talk about our history and realize because of it, there will forever be a bond between us.

On Juneteenth we think about that moment in time when the enslaved in Galveston, Texas received word of their freedom. We imagine the depth of their emotions, their jubilant dance and their fear of the unknown.

Juneteenth is a day that we commit to each other the needed support as family, friends and co-workers. It is a day we build coalitions that enhance African American economics. On Juneteenth we come together young and old to listen, to learn and to refresh the drive to achieve. It is a day where we all take one step closer together - to better utilize the energy wasted on racism. Juneteenth is a day that we pray for peace and liberty for all.

    Friends,
    The time has come for us to rise up against the tyranny of a two party system.
    A two party system that employs it’s people to not remember the past, but only live for the present. To not look objectively through the eyes of others, but through a false lense.
    Simply put, we can not afford a two party system any longer.Economically, morally, idealistically, socially, nor environmentally.
    Tyranny rises when the complacent are willing to allow those who engage in tyrannical behavior to speak out, without question. Acceptence of the less of two evils becomes the norm when resistance is no longer met.
    We must, peacefully of course, stand our ground on the freedoms and liberties we are granted by this nation by its founders, and destroy the capitolistic overlords that attempts to rule over a few.
    It is our turn.
    It is your turn.
    Freethinkers unite !
    Libertarian Party 4 America.
