The Libertarian Party of California will be hosting the 2020 Convention in the West Los Angeles area this year and you're invited! The convention will be held at the beautiful Doubletree by Hilton located at 6161 Centinela Avenue, Culver City, CA 90230 and will take place over President’s Day weekend, February 15-17, 2020. As an early holiday gift for you and your family, you can get special pricing until the end of the year! Sign up now at https://ca.lp.org/convention/
I truly believe this will be one of the most important conventions for the Libertarian Party of California in years. In addition to considering major changes to the Platform and Bylaws we will be electing four At-Large members of the LPC Executive Committee and Alternates, our Libertarian National Committee Regional Representative and Alternate, and our Judicial Committee who will serve for the next two years. We will also be endorsing candidates for our 2020 elections and conducting a Presidential Straw Poll. We need you to be there to take part to ensure everyone’s voice is heard!
In preparation for the Convention you can gear up and finish your Holiday shopping at our updated online store! Please go to https://shop.spreadshirt.com/LPCalifornia were you’ll find specially branded convention shirts, caps, tote bags and more!
Because we know just how much everyone loves liberty, the kick-off for the convention will be the perfect date night event for Valentine’s Day; a hosted reception (with no-host bar) where you can mingle with all of our speakers, candidates and other special guests. It’s truly something you and your date will always remember, and if you don’t have a date you might find that special someone there!
At the convention, the LPC will be hosting a debate that will be watched throughout the country, and you can be there! California is the largest National Libertarian Party affiliate, and all of our candidates will be attending. To make it even better it will be YOU, the delegates, that decide who will be on the stage. Matt Welch, Reason Magazine Editor at-Large, will moderate the debate, and candidates that are confirmed to be in attendance are Max Abramson, Ken Armstrong, Daniel “Taxation is Theft” Behrman, Daniel “DeeDee” Davenport, Souraya Faas, Erik Gerhardt, Jacob Hornberger, Jo Jorgensen, Adam Kokesh, Kim Ruff, Vermin Supreme and Arvin Vohra, with more to be added soon. This debate is sure to be something that will be the talk of the LP throughout the nation. The delegates at convention will be given tokens that they can use to ensure their favorite candidates appear on the debate stage, so we won’t know who they will be until the night of the debate, which will take place on Sunday, February 16th.
On the National Libertarian front, we will be electing our delegates for the 2020 Convention in Austin Texas, May 21-25th. It’s the delegates that elect the Presidential candidates as well as the national leadership, so this is sure to be a convention you will want to be a part of! We will also be hosting a debate of the candidates for LNC Chair, which currently includes Josh Smith and Mike Shipley, but we are sure that more candidates will be throwing their hat into the ring as the convention gets closer.

We also have several amazing speakers with more to be announced soon. Lincoln Chaffe, former US Senator and Governor of Rhode Island, and recent convert to the Libertarian Party, will be a featured speaker. Other speakers include Jennifer Grossman, CEO of the Atlas Foundation; Erin Cruz, founder and CEO of RAN Action Fund, who is spearheading the non-partisan Recall Newsom campaign; Riverside County Supervisor Jeff Hewitt, the highest elected Libertarian in the United States; and many more!
