The mission of the Louisville Tea Party is to advocate for fiscally responsible policies, lower taxes, and Constitutionally limited government. We will accomplish our advocacy by organizing peaceful gatherings, supporting like-minded local, state, and federal candidates and educating the community at large.
The Louisville TEA Party holds a monthly social on the third Thursday of each month, from 6:30PM to 7:30PM. Each event features speakers on specific topics, as well as activism updates and training for those wishing to be more effective at influencing the political environment and holding politicians accountable. Check back regularly for updates on locations and details of each month’s event.

We’re proud to invite you to another monthly social with interesting and uplifting content unlike you will be able to get anywhere else. Come early for our social time beforehand and enjoy mingling with your fellow freedom warriors. We’ll have drinks and snacks available for a donation.
Join us for our mix of local activism and updates on the state and national level.
Our keynote speaker is Amye Bensenhaver, one of the foremost experts on Kentucky’s nationally recognized open records and open meetings laws. She’s the director of the Bluegrass Institute’s Center for Open Government.
Bensenhaver, winner in 2016 of the Scripps Howard First Amendment Center Award, spent 25 years as an assistant attorney general during which she wrote nearly 2,000 legal opinions forcing government entities to operate in the open when too many of them preferred to keep questionable – sometimes even corrupt – activities hidden from public view.
She’ll be sharing her experiences defending fair and open government, and the legislative changes she’s working toward to update and enhance transparency in Kentucky.
Whether you have a lot of time or a little time, your involvement can make a huge difference!
