Kimberly Corban – Founder of Kimberly Corban Survivor, National Speaker, Mother, Sexual Assault Survivor, Second Amendment Advocate, DC Project Delegate and TownHall contributor.
Kimberly grew up in Greeley, Colorado and still has the pleasure of calling the Rocky Mountain state home. In May of 2006, Kimberly’s life was irrevocably changed when a stranger broke into her college-area apartment, held her there for two hours, and raped her. She immediately reported the crime to authorities and served as the key witness in her attacker’s trial, successfully garnering a sexual assault conviction.
Following the jury’s guilty verdict, Kimberly made the brave decision to release her name to the media with the goal of saving even just one victim, providing them the courage to come forward as well. Over the past several years, this has proven to be a rewarding yet tireless effort to educate the public on sexual assault and the impacts these crimes have on so many survivors. She has presented to numerous advocate groups, high schools and colleges, justice professionals, and various government agencies internationally on sexual assaults, using her case as an illustration for how the criminal justice system should work.
As a graduate student at the University of Northern Colorado, her and her fellow students’ right to continue to concealed carry on their college campuses came under fire in 2013. She knew she had to take action and get involved in the fight to protect our second amendment rights. What started as a testimony in front of her state officials exploded into a national conversation on victimization and self-defense. In 2016, Kimberly confronted President Obama on CNN’s nationally televised town hall “Guns in America”, asking him why he couldn’t see that his gun control policies were actually making her and her children less safe. Her unwavering voice in the face of adversity has earned her praise as “the modern face of gun rights” from some of America’s top politicos.
Kimberly has been featured on many major news networks including CNN, Fox News, NRA News, and The Blaze. She often lends her voice to multiple syndicated radio programs and print media to include The Washington Post, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Elle Magazine, MSN.com, the New York Times, and countless other online publications. She is a contributor to Bearing Arms, Conservative Review, and is a regular commentary guest on the NRA News program Cam & Company.
Michael Maharrey serves as the national communications director for the Tenth Amendment Center.
Hailing from Lexington, KY., he’s extremely proud that his home state originated the Principles of ’98, laying the groundwork for state nullification of unconstitutional acts.
Michael is the author of three books. Our Last Hope – Rediscovering the Lost Path to Liberty, makes the historical, philosophical and moral case for nullification. Smashing Myths: Understanding Madison’s Notes on Nullification digs deep into James Madison’s views on nullification, focusing on his writing’s later in life. Finally, Michael joined Tenth Amendment Center executive director Michael Boldin in penning Nullification Objections: Dismantling the Opposition, a book that takes apart the common objections to nullification one at a time.
The Tenth Amendment Center is the nation’s leading source for constitutional education and nullification activism.
While the establishment left and right continue to expand federal power, our goal is straightforward: Follow the Constitution: Every issue, every time. No exceptions, no excuses.
TAC works towards this goal in two ways: education and activism. We seek to teach people about the original meaning of the Constitution. And, we lead powerful grassroots coalitions to use nullification as a means to block federal overreach.
The 10th Amendment to the Constitution Of The United States Of America, is the section of the Bill of Rights that basically says that any power that is not given to the federal government is given to the people or the states.
