The LIBRE Institute is scheduled Thursday to begin its school supply campaign in Aurora, Colorado, and will then travel to the New Mexico cities of Roswell and Española.

The campaign is an annual effort aimed at talking to parents about charter schools, education savings accounts and online tutoring options.

A school supply give-away event in Albuquerque is planned for Aug. 4.

The LIBRE Institute in recent years has held forums around President Donald Trump's tax reforms and other conservative policies but has been vocal on pushing immigration reforms.
