Grassroots Lobbying - A Workshop for Center-Right Citizens who Want to Succeed

16 days until event begins

What you will learn

“You have to hold their feet to the fire because it's only when they feel the heat that they'll see the light.” - Sen. Everett Dirksen

Now that the elections are over, citizens in most states, counties, cities, and school districts have new, conservative leadership and the opportunity to pass legislation to promote the center-right agenda. This Grassroots Lobbying Workshop is for all citizens who want to impact legislation in their state, county, or city.

Led by leaders from across the liberty community, this workshop teaches you how to mobilize a grassroots organization to work with elected officials and stakeholders on issues. Also covered will be candidate recruitment and get-out-the-vote. These are the final phases of grassroots lobbying that kick in when meetings, social media, and pressure campaigns (all covered in this webinar) don't yield positive results.

In addition to the topics mentioned above, you will learn how to organize your efforts, marshall friendly forces, and engage elected officials. Additional on-demand content, which complements this material, is available to program enrollees.

Ideal attendees for the Grassroots Lobbying Workshop are concerned individuals who want to make an impact on public policy.

Attendees will learn how to:
• Develop a plan
Build coalitions and manage stakeholders
Craft effective social media posts
• Register voters
• Win in the legislature or at the ballot box

Sponsoring Organizations Include:
Parental Rights Foundation
Save Our States
Moms for Liberty

"The Leadership Institute made it possible for me to learn how to run a campaign, how to craft my message, how to speak effectively in public, and how to handle the media.

Above all, I learned how to win.

Today, I stand in a long line of conservative leaders who owe a debt of gratitude to Morton Blackwell and to the Leadership Institute.
