Fellow Patriots,

Upon reviewing the registration for the Activist Training School this weekend, we noticed relatively few Students, Young Americans for Liberty, and Students for Liberty members have signed up. Fortunately, we have had a good response to our training offering and have met our our fixed costs.

Given this, we've decided to make 30 slots available for Students for Liberty, Young Americans for Liberty, and other young people at a discounted rate of $10.00. This is a steep discount from the full price of $25.00 for the training.

The $10.00 not only includes top-notch training from Kirk Shelley but also covers snacks, beverages, and a Pizza Lunch on Saturday.

This is our way of saying thank you to all the young people working hard for liberty. I hope you would pass on this information to as many liberty minded young people as possible, as we hope to fill those 30 seats with energetic students that will carry the torch of liberty.
(Student must be a registered High School or College Student with ID)

Here are the details of this weekend's Activist Training School:

Are you ready to effect major political change and to reclaim our natural right to our Liberty? Are you ready to make the politicians finally listen to us and undo the harm they have done to us over the years?

This isn't a seminar on ideas or theories - this school is about how to create change. This is not a class on how to schmooze but on what you need to do to be respected and feared by the political class. If you are frustrated by politicians who say one thing at the Tea Party Rally but break their promise at the Capitol, then you need to be at this school.

So guess what: the politicians see you coming. They know how to deal with people like you. They don't want to give in to people like us. They know how to confuse you, discourage you, make you waste your time, make you go away, and if all else fails, buy you off.

Effective political mobilization is not taught at major universities. It is not taught at think tanks. It is not taught at mass demonstrations, and it is rarely even taught by grassroots organizations, who for the most part only expect their members to send letters to legislators and send them money.
It is not taught because the political class doesn't want you to know it.
At the Campaign for Liberty Grassroots Activist School, you will learn:

* What does and does not motivate politicians to fear and respect you.
* How mass movements fail, and why.
* Access-based lobbying versus confrontational lobbying.
* Putting power behind your words on Election Day.
* How to choose battles that will grow your organization.
* How to pass and defeat legislation.
* How to target legislators who vote against you, and which to go after first.
* How to grow your organization and develop your data resources.
* How to raise the money you need to be effective.

Presented by the Campaign for Liberty in Alabama

The Grassroots Activist Training is an intensive 1 day program.

As Campaign for Liberty believes that greater constituent pressure upon the political class is generally a healthy thing, members of all limited government organizations are welcome.
