Campus carry activist, beauty queen, NRA commentator, second amendment champion, and women’s rights advocate, black, female, conservative, millennial — Antonia Okafor is fighting to reclaim the true meaning of female empowerment.

Frequent Fox News and Blaze TV contributor, Antonia Okafor has been fighting for liberty as soon as she realized what liberty truly was. A former Democrat, Antonia had her “come to Jesus” moment just 5 years ago. In 2015, Antonia made a permanent mark in the second amendment community, when she became the Southwest Regional Director for Students for Concealed Carry on Campus (SCCC), where she advocated for the passing and successful implementation of the concealed carry on campus in Texas law known as, “campus carry.”

The National Rifle Association (NRA) took notice of her activism and had her star in one of their “Freedom’s Safest Place” commercials, a national campaign that highlights the diversity of NRA members.

Antonia made her CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) debut on the NRA’s ‘Armed and Fabulous’ panel moderated by Katie Pavlich in February. And this April, Antonia shared the main stage with President Trump at the NRA-ILA Leadership Forum as a featured speaker where she introduced her pro second amendment organization for young women-EMPOWERED. Antonia is the founder and CEO of EMPOWERED, a recognized IRS 501 C (3) national student organization that educates, trains and equips young women on campus to safely use guns for self-defense and advocate for the right to use them.

Antonia is no stranger of the hate from the anti-gun Left. Whether it’s an article where BET specifically called her out for being a black woman friendly to conservative figures such as Tomi Lahren or making waves for her first New York Times op-ed piece title, “Why I Bring a Gun to School, Antonia is usually making headlines.
Antonia is not afraid to speak her truth and channels her energy and growing network to fight for what she believes makes America the greatest country on the planet.

Not to be put in anyone’s box, Antonia deviates from the textbook traditional conservative image and instead exemplifies the modern conservative millennial in her “conservatarian” beliefs. She’s not shy of expressing her support of criminal justice reform and disdain of the ‘War on Drugs’, which has earned her the respect of many libertarians. She has made appearances on Fox Business’, “The Kennedy Show”, The Rubin Report and The Blaze TV where she has made her libertarian beliefs known.

Antonia will be traveling the country this fall from college campus to college campus as part of her ‘Be emPOWERed’ tour. Feminism, gun rights, race relations and free speech, Antonia Okafor will be speaking about it all and as a result will be sure to ruffle even more feathers.

A born and raised native Dallas, Texan, Antonia will be competing in Miss Texas International as Miss Dallas in February 2018.
