Conservative Group Hits Major Milestone in Developing New Human Infrastructure to Counter Left
Purcellville, VA…March 21st, 2012—American Majority, the nation’s leading conservative grassroots training organization has passed a major milestone in their mission to develop a new conservative infrastructure to protect America, having now trained 20,000 candidates and activists. The milestone was reached this past weekend at an American Majority training in Pittsburgh, PA attended by more than 200 local tea party and other conservative activists.
“We’ve come farther and faster than any other organization in training this number of activists and candidates,” states Ned Ryun, Founder and President of American Majority. “In only three years, we’ve trained more than 20,000 citizens on the ground in nearly all fifty states who are committed to the principles of limited government and individual freedom. It is just the beginning of creating a strong force of liberty-minded activists to keep America free.
American Majority trainings and materials are part of a proprietary, cutting-edge curriculum of advanced political tactics. The curriculum includes policy education, messaging, precinct organization, Get-Out-the-Vote operations, fundraising and social media. American Majority’s Twitivism guide is widely viewed as the leading manual for using Twitter as a tool to inform and mobilize conservatives.
Since January 2009, American Majority has conducted more field trainings than any other conservative grassroots organization having brought their curriculum to nearly all fifty states through more than 560 training sessions. Among those trained have been more than 2,000 candidates for local, state and federal office, the majority of which have gone on to win their elections and be a force for fiscal conservative policies.
“For too long, conservatives have been out-organized by the Left’s well funded, well trained ground operation,” states Ryun. “American Majority set out to counter that progressive organizing power one group, one community at a time – and with the help of hundreds of local organizations we are seeing results.”
In addition to its trainings, American Majority has also developed a number of ground-breaking programs to strengthen the conservative movement. In February 2012, they launched a NASCAR outreach effort and PledgetoVote.com including the sponsorship of the #81 MacDonald Motorsports car for the entire Nationwide racing season.
After the 2010 elections, American Majority launched its New Leaders Project set out to recruit more than 10,000 additional candidates for local and state office for the coming election cycle. In, 2011 the group held the nation’s first Constitution Day Training Bomb, holding grassroots training classes in more than a dozen cities simultaneously.
“We’ve developed an advanced curriculum of tactics that has been so effective over the last three years that even progressive groups are starting to take notice,” states Ryun. “We’re just getting started. I’d like to thank all the local activists we have worked with and partnered with over the last three years to reach this important benchmark.”
