Do you want to lead efforts to build the liberty movement by conceiving and directing programs to spread our principles? Do you hope to be part of a team that builds relationships and collaborates with other liberty-minded individuals and organizations to make changes in our nation? How do you spread principles, policies, and ideas among leaders, allies, public audiences, and new audiences? Forming strategic coalitions and trust-based relationships with third-parties is key to advocating for our ideas and bringing them to fruition. Learn what programs and strategies are key to building a successful coalitions relations shop, and how you can match your skills in these areas. Join America’s Future Foundation and Hoover Institution in DC for a panel featuring leading coalition experts to learn about what it takes to join and lead an effective coalitions team.
