Jacksonville, Florida Activist Training

This year, as town council, school board and other local elections are held across the nation, voters are getting involved like never before and are standing up to demand accountability and responsibility from their elected officials. As states face critical budget issues, town councils have to decide whether to cut spending or raise local taxes, and corrupt elected officials are taken to task, our country needs patriots who are organized, effective and ready to stand for lower taxes, transparency, and Constitutional government.

In partnership with the First Coast Tea Party, American Majority will be conducting an activist training session in Jacksonville, Florida on Saturday, October 15th . The event will be geared toward giving grassroots activists in Florida the resources and information that will help them utilize timeless tactics proven to win elections for their chosen candidates, as well as cutting-edge technology meant to streamline and facilitate voter contact. Topics addressed at the training include:

–      Precinct Work: Learn the importance of researching, “microtargeting,” and “hardwiring” the most basic building blocks of the electoral map: precincts. A strategy based on these small groups of voters can make or break an election.

–      GOTV: An age-old acronym meaning “Get out the vote!” Learn time-tested tactics that will bring voters to the polls for your candidate on election day.

–     Community Organizing for Freedom: The Left has spent decades building a permanent political infrastructure in their communities that can be relied upon to deliver electoral victory year after year. Learn their tactics and use them to counter-organize for the cause of liberty.

–     A special presentation of GroundSWELL by Political Gravity Executive Vice President Matt Armstrong: Political Gravity has developed a cutting-edge tool for Voter Relationship Management (VRM). GroundSWELL is a revolutionary campaign tool designed to allow the conservative movement to take the lead in technology. GroundSWELL consists of a mobile canvassing application, a mobile GOTV application, and is built around a VRM on the back end, which enables campaigns to do sophisticated microtargeting and analysis. These tools are sold to conservative candidates at affordable pricing, and are also available to TEA Parties and conservative grassroots groups at no charge in order to help the conservative movement.

The training will be held at the Holiday Inn Jacksonville I-95 Baymeadows, at 9150 Baymeadows Rd. in Jacksonville, Florida, from 9:00AM-2:00PM. The registration fee of $25.00 per person includes lunch and training materials.

Registration is available at the door.

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT: Steve Vaughan Wins Big

Newly elected State Representative Steve Vaughn of Ponca City (OK) has deep roots and a love for his state that goes back to the generations of his family that settled in northern Oklahoma before statehood.  It was this passion, along with a desire to serve and a concern for the direction of our country, which prompted Representative Vaughn to run against a two-term incumbent for a seat within the Oklahoma State House of Representatives in the fall of 2010.

However, being that Representative Vaughn was a political novice who knew nothing about campaigning for public office, he enthusiastically attended an American Majority Candidate Training during the summer before the election and an American Majority Activist Training as well.  While these trainings armed Representative Vaughn with a new-found knowledge of micro-targeting, volunteer recruitment, fundraising, and turning out the vote on Election Day, he put in the time and effort necessary to raise his profile within the community.  He tirelessly spoke to as many people around Ponca City as he could, both at their doors and at community functions, and he was purposeful in how he deftly differentiated himself from his opponent.

Thankfully his hard work, determination, and dedication to implementing what he had learned at the American Majority trainings he had attended ultimately paid off as he defeated his incumbent opponent by just over 5% in the November election.  Now with the legislative session being underway at the Oklahoma State Capitol, we are excited to see Representative Steve Vaughn serve the people of northern Oklahoma with the same excitement and conviction as he brought to the campaign trail.

Grassroots Train for 2012 Rumble With Obama, Liberals Over Spending

Contact: Thomas Basile (917) 579-2216
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

 GRASSROOTS TRAIN FOR RUMBLE WITH OBAMA ON CONSTITUTION DAY

American Majority Leads Historic Event to Train Tea Party Activists in More than a Dozen Cities

 New York, NY (September 16, 2011) – On the heels of another so-called stimulus proposal and more outrageous comments by union leaders and liberal politicians, tea party and other conservative grassroots activists are getting ready to rumble with Obama in 2012 over America’s future. With personal and economic freedom in peril like never before, American Majority has brought together tea party members and liberty-minded activists in more than a dozen cities to train to defend American values on Constitution Day, September 17th.  The American Majority “Training Bomb” is the largest single-day conservative grassroots training initiative in history.  For the first time, simultaneous sessions across America will be held to educate and mobilize fiscally conservative activists and future candidates to fight for limited government and free market principles.

“This isn’t a rally and it’s not a summit.  This hasn’t been done before.  The “Training Bomb” is an unprecedented 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 Americans together to learn how they can ensure we continue to live in a free society.”

Both activist and candidate courses will be offered at each location to help the conservative cause organize for victory next year.  Topics will range from the fundamentals of successful political operations and hardwiring precincts to communicating policy and online image management. The Training Bomb sessions are being held in New York, NY, Tulsa, OK, Dallas, TX, Nashville, TN, Appleton, WI, Fayetteville, NC, Indianapolis, IN, Chicago, IL, Hartland, VT, Troy, MI, Daytona Beach, FL, Scottsdale, AZ, Loveland, CO, and Cincinnati, OH.

“Tea Party members and other conservative grassroots activists are under attack,” states Ryun.  “They’ve been maligned by advocates of a desperate, leftist ideology that is bereft of ideas and threatening our way of life.  The Training Bomb’s goal is to educate and engage our rank-and-file fight for principles the majority of Americans support – smaller, less intrusive government.”

To organize this nation-wide effort, American Majority is working closely with many of the most effective grassroots groups in the nation such as the Dallas Tea Party, New York’s Tea Party 365, 9.12 Project Tennessee, and Right Turn Colorado.

Over the last two years American Majority, the nation’s leading grassroots training organization, has trained nearly 20,000 conservative activists and candidates in nearly all 50 states.
