Eagle Forum, the pro-family, conservative organization founded by the late Phyllis Schlafly in 1972, is pleased to announce that it has selected Kristen Ardizzone Ullman as the organization’s new president.
Kris Ullman served as Executive Director of Eagle Forum’s Washington, D.C. office from 1995-1998 and is currently serving on Eagle Forum’s Board of Directors.
“Kris has been an effective advocate for conservative principles throughout her entire career. And, she is an engaged mom, who has experienced first-hand the dangers the woke agenda pose to our children,” said Eagle Forum Board Member and outgoing President Colleen Holcomb.
“As mothers and concerned Americans throughout the country look to Eagle Forum for leadership in fighting the liberal agenda that threatens our children, our economy, and the very foundations of our civilization, we are thrilled to have a leader like Kris whose unique experience and insight equips her so well to lead this battle effectively,” Holcomb concluded.
Mrs. Ullman is a graduate of Virginia Tech and earned her law degree from The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law. Upon completing her studies, she worked as a Program Instructor with The Close Up Foundation before joining Eagle Forum in 1994. Kris served as Legislative Director for Senator John D. Ashcroft (R-MO) and as Deputy Associate Attorney General in the Office of Legal Policy in the U.S. Department of Justice.
Kris left outside employment to be a full-time homemaker and the mother of three children who are now young adults. During this time, she continued to serve in a variety of roles in her children’s schools and community organizations. She has been a regular conservative debater for The Close Up Foundation for over 25 years, and taught a summer course with The Fund for American Studies. She formerly appeared as a regular commentator on the Thom Hartmann Show on RT-TV.
Board Chairman Anne Schlafly Cori expressed her congratulations to Kris and her appreciation to Colleen Holcomb for her steadfast service as President. Colleen remains an active board member.
Eagle Forum is the 501(c)(4) organization founded by Phyllis Schlafly as the nation’s premier volunteer conservative citizen lobbying organization. Eagle Forum members have been effectively fighting for conservative, pro-family policies in their state legislatures and in Congress in conjunction with Eagle Forum’s Capitol Hill office.
