The 2015 U.S. Health Freedom Congress Strengthening the Voice of Health Freedom!

Hosted by National Health Freedom Coalition

On October 19th and 20th, over twenty leading health freedom organizations and forty additional organizations and participants representing millions of health freedom-conscious Americans came together at Hamline University in St. Paul, Minnesota.  They discussed urgent concerns for health freedom and strengthened collaboration within the health freedom movement.


The event opened and closed with the Health Freedom Voting Member organizations convening in a circle Round, beginning the first day with introducing their organizations and closing by giving their response to the weekend work. The great success of this year’s Congress is again attributed to all leaders participating in, what is known as, Open Space dialogue sessions throughout the weekend; as well as attending an evening social media hands-on workshop; hearing “Stories of Freedom, Stories of Courage”; and attending the Health Freedom Awards Banquet with Keynote Brian S. Hooker, scientist turned CDC Whistle-blower Communicator. Click Here to view entire Congress Program. Each aspect of the Congress inspired and motivated leaders to work together to strengthen the entire health freedom movement. Two resolutions were passed by the 2015 Health Freedom Congress.

2015Conference-Summary_clip_image002The Open Space Sessions were remarkable and were facilitated by Denise Lewis Premshak of Voice for HOPE, who adeptly walked leaders through the Open Space activity. Sessions gave leaders an opportunity to voice their priorities, develop focus groups, state their unique perspectives on issues before them, and then report back to the larger group with their comments and recommendations referencing the “golden nuggets” that emerged in dialogue. These wonderful words and phrases were written on colored papers and posted for all to see. Click Here to see photos of some of the nuggets brought forward.

2015Conference-Summary_clip_image004We live in a world of technology and social media, and leaders are eager to use it to leverage their message for the benefit of all people. Dana Gorman, founder of, provided an exciting evening of hands-on guidance, demonstrating how leaders can expand the reach of their message by knowing how to use social media platforms for networking with, linking to, and collaborating between groups. Leaders also learned more about the power of @tags, hashtags and memes! We’re inspired to use technology to help Americans know their health freedoms and how to take action to protect them.

2015Conference-Summary_clip_image006Three brilliant and moving Health Freedom Stories!  Celebrating those who stand up for health freedom, the Stories provided inspiration to those working for freedom, strengthened relationships, and encouraged collaboration.  Thank you to Camilla Rees and Leo Cashman (Story of Applied Action: Digital demonstration on WiFi exposures and practices to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of EMFs), Atina Diffley (Story of Courage: How the 2013 Minnesota Book Award winner, an organic farmer-educator, successfully led a legal and citizen campaign against the notorious polluters, Koch Industries, to create an Organic Mitigation Plan for organic farms in Minnesota), and Tami Goldstein (Story of Courage: The unimaginable obstacles faced by the mother of a vaccine-injured child during her daughter’s journey through autism to functioning recovery) for speaking their truth.

2015Conference-Summary_clip_image008The event culminated with the Health Freedom Awards Banquet and with the passionate address by Brian S. Hooker,world leader, scientist, and advocate for scientific integrity at the CDC and vaccine safety. Brian Hooker’s presentation was stunning, giving leaders the insight and courage they need to leverage the cause of human, civil and parental rights in the area of informed consent and vaccine safety.  Health Freedom Awards were presented at the banquet to four outstanding health freedom leaders: Jim Jenks, Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation, Nevada Coordinator; Pete Kennedy, JD, Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, Raw Milk Advocacy; Frank 2015Conference-Summary_clip_image010Wallace, Wyoming Food Freedom; and Brian S. Hooker. Inspiring acceptance speeches were given by health freedom heroes:  Jim Jenks of Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation via an inspiring pre-recorded video of Jim speaking to us from Nevada and Kirk Bashaw, the President of Sunshine, accepting the award on his behalf; Pete Kennedy of Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, accepting on behalf of himself and of Frank Wallace of Wyoming Food Freedom; and Brian Hooker before his Keynote speech.

The 2015 Voting Members and attendees forged alliances and collaborative plans to ensure the vision of health freedom in our country. We encourage you to know and support these organizations and join in the health freedom movement.

The 2015 US Health Freedom Congress AWARDEES

The 2015 US Health Freedom Congress AWARDEES

  1. Jim Jenks, Sunshine Health Freedom Foundation, Nevada Coordinator: AWARDED “For his long-term, outstanding leadership for health freedom in Nevada, promoting and protecting access to herbalists and all of natural health care, and for his many years of vigilance in protecting health freedoms in Nevada which led to the passage of Nevada’s 2015 A.B. 295, the new ‘Provision of Wellness Services’ law.”
  2. Pete Kennedy, JD, Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, Raw Milk Advocacy: AWARDED “For his leadership and dedication in supporting raw milk advocates in numerous states, and acting as a central hub of information and support for the protection and promotion of access to raw milk products in the U.S. and in celebration of the impressive successes of access to raw milk in 2015, as Connecticut became the sixth state to pass legislation increasing access to raw milk.”
  3. Frank Wallace, Wyoming Food Freedom: AWARDED “Accepted by Frank Wallis ‘for the many people who lobbied, made phone calls, sent emails, attended hearings, and testified over the period of many years in order to have the Wyoming Food Freedom Act enacted in our state.’ NHFC congratulates Frank and his team for six years of rigorous work on the Wyoming Food Freedom Act (WFFA), passed into law on March 3, 2015, setting the bar high for efforts at similar legislation elsewhere in the United States of America. Under the WFFA, the production and sale within Wyoming of any food except meat products by a producer direct to the “informed end consumer” is not subject to licensing or inspection.”
  4. Brian S. Hooker, PhD, PE Professor, Scientist, CDC Whistle-blower Communicator: AWARDED “For his diligent work as a scientist and investigator who uncovered many instances of fraud and malfeasance in the CDC’s vaccine safety program and most recently enabled exposure of blatant scientific misconduct through the CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson.”
