2018 Event Stars

We are so thankful for the volunteers who go above and beyond to make our events the experience of a lifetime!

BJ and Joslyn Mumford

BJ and Joslyn Mumford

Liberty Forum 2019 Producers

BJ and Joslyn first learned about the Free State Project during the 2012 Ron Paul campaign, and by 2015 they had made the move to New Hampshire. They are now homeowners in Nottingham, where they spend their spare time doing home improvement projects.
Producing an event of this size is a first for BJ and Joslyn, and they are so happy to have found such a supportive community here. Making Liberty Forum a showcase of Liberty in our Lifetime, and seeing more people choose to make the move, is sure to be its own reward. Join us at Liberty Forum or volunteer to see what they have in store!

Rodger and Jessica Paxton

Rodger and Jessica Paxton

PorcFest 2018 Producers

Rodger, Jessica, and their family live just north of New Hampshire’s beautiful Seacoast. They enjoy being surrounded by a supportive group of unschooling, peaceful parenting, entrepreneurial-minded Freecoasters. As long time liberty activists, they each served in various roles within the Libertarian Party of Arkansas before moving to the Free State. In 2016, the Paxtons organized and ran the Main Pavilion at PorcFest, and were members of the Freecoast Festival production team in 2016 and 2017. Rodger serves on the Board of Directors for the Free State Project. Jessica is an unschooling mom of two boys who keep her busy exploring all that New Hampshire has to offer. She considers herself a “professional volunteer,” and enjoys organizing political events of all kinds, from press conferences to protests to PorcFest.
