Where Do We Go From Here: African Americans in the 21st Century
A cultural and political interpretation to the contemporary issues of black Americans
As a DC Native, Liz Matory grew up deep in the heart of the liberal bubble. She never questioned her party affiliation, never thought of being a conservative or joining the GOP until she experienced the Democratic Party machine personally. Several life-altering moments forced her to hunt for better solutions to address issues facing our country and communities in Maryland.
Liz wrote the book Born Again Republican with her campaign manager, Chante Hopkins, to chronical Liz’s personal and political experience leaving the Democrat Party, life as an independent and finally a “Black Republican” while running for congress in Maryland in 2016. How to Leave the Left in 5 Simple Steps is her free e-book that invites folks on the fence to acknowledge that now is the time to participate in this political awakening.
She is active in Maryland politics, specifically for traditionally marginalized voters, i.e. Maryland Republicans and conservatives. In February, Liz will launch a candidate training e-course called Drain The Swarm Bootcamp to train right-of-center challengers for positions across the country.
Schooling wise, she graduated from Columbia University (BA), Howard University School of Law (JD), and the University of Maryland, Smith School of Business (MBA).
