Fairfax, VA – -(Ammoland.com)- The National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) is recognizing Chapel Hill resident, Cathy Wright, for her effective grassroots activism in protecting the Second Amendment.
NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox presented Wright with the Jay M. Littlefield Memorial NRA-ILA Volunteer of the Year Award at the NRA’s January 2018 board meeting. The award recognizes an individual NRA member for her meritorious defense of the Second Amendment.
“Cathy Wright’s passion for the Second Amendment coupled with her effective grassroots activism were critical to President Trump’s 2016 election victory in North Carolina,” said Glen Caroline, NRA-ILA Grassroots Programs & Campaign Field Operations Director. “Wright has ‘the right stuff’ when it comes to protecting our constitutional freedoms.”
Wright spearheaded various successful grassroots events and was instrumental in organizing door-to-door efforts in her area on behalf of NRA-PVF-endorsed candidates. Wright consistently volunteers to work NRA-ILA tables at events, and could always be counted on as a reliable and effective representative of the NRA. She continues to recruit new people into NRA’s grassroots programs, and is a steadfast volunteer year-round.
“Cathy Wright is a true grassroots champion for the state in all areas of activism, and is very deserving of this award,” added Caroline.
Established in 1975, the Institute for Legislative Action (ILA) is the “lobbying” arm of the National Rifle Association of America. ILA is responsible for preserving the right of all law-abiding individuals in the legislative, political, and legal arenas, to purchase, possess and use firearms for legitimate purposes as guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
