What you will learn

“You can't beat somebody with nobody” – Morton Blackwell

Just as our founding fathers came together to establish a free and independent nation, grassroots activism is all about working with your neighbors to effect changes in public policy. The more effective activists you have on your team, the better.

This final online session in Leadership Institute's Ground-Up Activism Series is centered on developing and maintaining a solid presence in your community to ensure your grassroots movement continues to have influence in the weeks, months, and years to come.

You will learn how to:
  • Build and maintain a presence in your community
  • Partner with local community members, organizations, and party
  • Equip and mobilize your locals to become effective activists
