Lunch sponsored by FreedomWorks is included with an all-day Boot Camp RSVP or the Holding the Swamp Accountable class.
FreedomWorks is flying out Mark Herr from the Center for Self-Governance (CSG) and Cesar Ybarra, VP of Policy at FreedomWorks, for an exciting day of civic education! The path to making freedom work starts with learning how our Founders designed our system of self-governance and how government really works.
The CSG training teaches how to push back effectively when government becomes abusive. Rather than looking at bad government as a "them" running a corrupt swamp that can't be defeated, the Center for Self-Governance system teaches you how our government operates like it's an engine and We the People are the Mechanics & Pilot!
Hundreds of CSG alumni have gone on to be elected officials and are instrumental in defeating federal government overreach in their local communities.
The all-day boot camp includes 3 classes: Political Leadership, Holding the Swamp Accountable, and How Arizona's School Government Works. For those that already took the Political Leadership 1 class, the Block 2 Class is available.
