American Majority Announces Nation’s First Training Bomb

Contact: Thomas Basile (917) 579-2216 or Matt Robbins (540) 338-1251

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 AMERICAN MAJORITY ANNOUNCES NATION’S FIRST “TRAINING BOMB” SEPTEMBER 17TH

Historic One-Day Event will Train Thousands of Tea Party Activists in More than a Dozen Cities

 

PURCELLVILLE, VA (July 21, 2011) – American Majority, is proud to announce that on September 17th, Constitution Day, tea party members and liberty-minded activists will come together in more than a dozen cities for the largest single-day grassroots training initiative in American history.  For the first time simultaneous sessions across America will be held to educate and mobilize fiscally conservative activists and future candidates.

“This isn’t a rally and it’s not a summit.  This hasn’t been done before.  The “Training Bomb” is a massive effort to help local tea party groups organize for real action and real change,” states Ned Ryun, President of American Majority who adapted the concept from the popular “money bomb” grassroots technique used by national campaigns.  “Local activists know we need to reduce the impact of government on our lives to make America stronger.  There’s no better day than Constitution Day to bring thousands of Americans together to learn how they can ensure we continue to live in a free society.”

Both an activist and candidate curriculum will be offered at each location to help the conservative cause organize for victory next year.  Cities where “Training Bomb” sessions will be held include New York, Chicago, Tulsa, Nashville, Madison, Ft. Meyers, and Dallas.  Additional cities will be announced in the coming days.

To organize this nation-wide effort, American Majority is working closely with many of the most effective groups in the nation such as the Cincinnati Tea Party, Dallas Tea Party, New York’s Tea Party 365 and the Florida Alliance.

“The Training Bomb’s goal is to educate and engage as many rank-and-file volunteers and leaders as possible,” continues Ryun.  “We will beat back the encroachment of government on our personal and economic freedom by ensuring Americans are trained on the fundamentals of successful political operations be it communicating policy, hardwiring a precinct, get-out-the-vote techniques, or online image management,” states Ryun.  Over the last two years American Majority, the nation’s leading grassroots training organization, has trained nearly 20,000 conservative activists and candidates in more than 40 states.

The effort is meant to complement American Majority’s New Leaders Project (NLP) which is designed to recruit 10,000 future candidates from local tea party groups for the 2012 cycle.  The NLP recently announced its 500th organization to sign the program’s recruitment pledge bringing the program halfway to its goal of engaging 1,000 groups.  American Majority will train all recruits in a variety of areas from fiscal policy to campaign management to mobilization.

Individuals or organizations interested in attending one of the Training Bomb sessions can log onto www.TrainingBomb.com for more information.  Additional details will be released in the coming days.

American Majority’s Training Bomb, September 17th, 2011

On September 17th, 2011, we will celebrate the 224th anniversary of the signing of our Constitution. It is one of the greatest political documents in history, and has provided us with a roadmap to become the most prosperous and free nation the world has ever seen.

But in 2011, the principles of limited government and individual freedom are in question, and we are at a crossroads: do we go down a path of statism, and abandon the founding vision for this country? Or do we renew those ideals again, and rise to even greater heights of freedom and prosperity? Understanding there is a problem is not enough. Thinking about ideas to solve the problems is not enough. Protesting is not enough.

For us to turn this country around, and have leadership that believes and promotes the right ideas of limited government, free enterprise and fiscal responsibility, the citizens must be equipped with the tools to bring about real change, and then spurred into action. The time to sit and think, or vent, has passed. The time for real action has come.

To that end, American Majority, one of the premier political training institutions in this country, is proud to announce that on September 17th, Constitution Day, it will be conducing the first ever Training Bomb. Tea party members and liberty-minded activists will come together in more than a dozen cities for the largest single-day grassroots training initiative in American history.  For the first time simultaneous sessions across America will be held to educate and mobilize fiscally conservative activists and future leaders.

This is not a rally and it’s not a summit. American Majority’s Training Bomb is a massive effort to equip concerned citizens with the tools necessary to bring about change, from how to run for office, to how to be effectively engaged as an activist online, to even how to works precincts and build muscular grassroots. We know we need to reduce the impact of government on our lives to make America stronger, and there’s no better day than Constitution Day to bring thousands of Americans together to learn how they can ensure we continue to live in a free society.

Both an activist and candidate curriculum will be offered at each location to help the conservative cause organize for victory next year.  Cities where Training Bomb sessions will be held include New York, Chicago, Tulsa, Murfeesboro, Wausau, and Dallas. Additional cities will be announced in the coming days. To organize this nation-wide effort, American Majority is working closely with many of the most effective groups in the nation such as the Cincinnati Tea Party, New York’s Tea Party 365, Dallas Tea Party and Heritage Action for America North Carolina .

American Majority’s Training Bomb on September 17th will not only be the biggest one-day training of conservative activists ever, but American Majority is going to be introducing new lectures, new manuals, and new projects. Help us make the day a success by signing up and spreading the word. Together we can, and will, make the right change happen in this country.
