Our nation was founded by ordinary citizen activists desiring a government that was accountable to the people. It’s 2012 and cities, counties, and school districts across our nation are seeing the effects of the visible lack of principled, conservative leadership as they face unbalanced budgets, uncontrolled debt, and residents who are fed-up with government intrusion into their lives and wallets.

The need for new leaders to come forward, to take a stand for free-market and limited government principles and to commit to defending Constitutional principles is as strong as ever. American Majority’s goal is to provide the tools and resources that will help you become effective activists in your community.

American Majority, along with the Schaumburg Tea Party, is pleased to announce that an activist training will take place in Schaumburg, IL on Saturday, July 7.

This political training will take place at the Westwood Restaurant2nd Floor Wine Room (1385 N Meacham Rd, Schaumburg, IL 60173). It will run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. The cost is $25 for advanced online registration and $35 at the door. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Full training materials and lunch will be provided and are included in the cost.

The event will be geared toward giving activists the resources and information that will help them effectively organize in their communities to defend limited government and free market principles.
