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.
