Interested in Getting More Involved in the Political Process?

Have you ever had political aspirations? Do you want to change politics and spur reform in our education system from within? If so, then the American Federation for Children invites you to attend our next Campaign Training School, to be held on Saturday, July 23, 2011, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana! The training school will be held at the Louisiana Association of Business and Industry from 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM Central Time.

AFC Board Member Kevin P. Chavous recorded a message about the work that we do to help pro-reform candidates, and why having reform-minded folks in office is so important.

Political action is an essential part of advancing school choice opportunities for children, and we work hard to elect pro-education reform candidates to state office. Anyone interested in running for state legislature, state and local school boards, mayor, city council, or parish government is welcome. Even if you are not registered to run for office, but have wondered how to run a political campaign or are interested in helping someone, this school is for you, too! At the campaign training school, you’ll not only learn from experts about the basics of how to run a successful campaign for public office, you’ll also learn about how to effectively communicate about school choice policy and educational choice to voters and the news media.

There is no cost to attend this event, but space is limited. Please RSVP by next Friday, July 15th by using the registration link at
