For the second quarter of 2011, Front Range Objectivism (FRO) members continued their activism and publishing.

In particular, FRO members published the following at the regional and national level:

OpEds: 19
LTEs: 04
Radio/Television Appearances: 03
Lectures/Panels: 2

Some of the topics covered include free speech, social security, Ayn Rand in the popular culture, health care, and taxes.

Much of this writing was done by people working in their spare time, in addition to their day jobs.

This list does not include citations in local and national media, participation in Tea Party events, letters to elected officials, postings to Facebook and Twitter, and blogging.

I’d like to thank my fellow FRO activists for their hard work during these past three months. If I have inadvertently omitted someone’s piece, please let me know so I can update this tally.
