Activist of the Month – Dee Park

February 09, 2011

Dee Park[img_assist|nid=22550|title=Dee Park|desc=Dee Park|link=none|align=left|width=197|height=300] is the leader and co-founder of Moore TEA Citizens, a citizen activist group in Pinehurst, North Carolina. Under Dee’s leadership, the group has grown in size from three members in early 2009 to over 1,700 today, making them one of the largest citizen activist groups in North Carolina.

Dee and the Moore TEA Citizens have been valuable partners with Americans for Prosperity’s North Carolina chapter. AFP can always depend on Dee to generate turnout at state rallies and fill buses of activists for trips to Washington, DC. She has also helped new citizen activist groups get started by sharing with them what she has learned as leader in the tea party movement.

Prior to joining the movement, Dee was a teacher and small business owner with her husband of 30 years, Bro, who is also active in Moore TEA Citizens. While she had been an activist in local issues for years, Dee decided to get even more involved when she saw the trend of out of control government spending only getting worse, especially when the current administration entered office. “We need to do whatever we can to reclaim the America we love”, she says.

Dee, thanks for all that you do. You are AFP’s Activist of the Month
