Ground-Up Activism Series

10 days until event begins

What you will learn

“In politics, nothing moves unless pushed.” - Morton Blackwell

With primaries underway and midterms right around the corner, it is time to turn up the heat in this summer by mobilizing conservative activists in your community.

Through a series of six 3-hour workshops, the Leadership Institute's Ground-Up Activism Series will cover everything you need to know to build and organize an effective grassroots movement from start-to-finish.

In this activism series, you will learn to:
  • Develop and communicate an effective mission statement
  • Recruit, lead, and retain volunteers
  • Successfully organize local activities and events
  • Build and mobilize coalitions through your activist efforts
  • Expand your outreach with the media
Gather the tools and knowledge you need to get the “red wave” rolling where you live, and register for all six sessions for $100, or $30 for each individual session.
