Want to See Education Reform Enacted?
Listen to Uncle Sam: It’s Time for YOU to be a Leader in Enacts Education Reform
Political action has always been an essential part of the United States. From the 1780s, when our constitution was debated (think: the original town halls) and ratified, to casting a vote in this week’s Super Tuesday primaries, Americans have always exercised our voice in voting.
At the same time, the U.S. Congress has a nine percent approval rating, every president in recent memory struggles to keep one step ahead of rising levels of disapproval, and we’re seeing education reform stall in states across the nation. We’ve voted, but it’s time to do more.
In fact, you can do more!
Have you ever had an inkling to run for political office? Maybe the state legislature, a state or local school board, mayor, or city council? If you have, Uncle Sam wants you to attend one of the American Federation for Children's Campaign Training Schools!
We’ve hosted a variety of campaign training schools across the nation, from Ohio to Louisiana to Georgia to Milwaukee, and next up, we’re headed to Indiana. Some of graduates from past schools are even serving as elected officials!
Learn how to run a successful political campaign, how to communicate effectively, utilize political actions available in your state, how to engage in grassroots advocacy, work with the media, and message your ideas to an audience.
The next Campaign Training School will be held on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 in Indianapolis at the Hilton Garden Inn. RSVP here and be the next elected official standing with our children!
