As many of our elected officials continue to treat our Constitution with contempt, it is more important than ever that we actively participate in government at all levels and reinsert common sense into the political conversation.You can take a very important step in winning your liberties back by becoming a Florida Campaign for Liberty Local Coordinator.
Here is a list of things you can do to get started building your network of supporters and winning battles:
Attend Your Local Government Meetings
Winning our liberties back will require participation in all levels of government, and attendance at meetings such as City Council, County Board, School Board, etc. is essential to keeping abreast of local issues and holding our elected officials accountable. Low attendance allows these officials to operate under the radar, and they make decisions that are not in your best interest as a result.
Be sure to record the meetings or take detailed notes so you can share important details with your neighbors and other local activists. (Before recording a meeting, be sure to research any local ordinances regarding the legality of doing so.)
Visit Your Neighbors
Visit your neighbors and let them know what happened at the meetings you attended—ask them for assistance in passing or defeating initiatives that require attention.
If you are able, compose a petition that your neighbors can sign voicing their agreement with you on these issues. You cannot always rely on people to show up for a meeting, but you can demonstrate their support or objections through signed petitions.
Building a List
As you begin building your network of supporters by attending the different meetings and visiting your neighbors, be sure to keep records of contact information, issues of concern, and the steps you took or will take to achieve your goals.
Once you find an ally, be sure to keep in touch with them to help each other remain motivated.
Influence Your Local Political Party
Attend meetings and become a source of influence in the local political party of your choice. Changing the make-up of party structures and providing a major source of influence for the grassroots within the party of your choice is integral to our success.
