Have you ever wanted to know how to get something on your local ballot? We are always looking at the state issues, but often tax increases or other intrusions on liberty are put on your city or county ballot. Our training classes teach you how to put your own initiatives up for a vote – or at the very least fight the overreach of government through the ballot box.

We will also teach the skills you will need to apply for local positions and to serve as an effective leader. The training includes:

  • talk about the board/commission application process
  • learn what to expect once you are on a board
  • offer support as you serve your community



Does it seem like slowly but surely our freedoms are being eroded? If you are alarmed, discouraged or troubled about what is taking place in Colorado and around the country, YOU can be part of the solution. We want to help you feel like it’s okay to fight for the freedoms our country was founded on. Register to attend Independent Institute’s newest seminar, Speaking Up and Speaking Out!

Learn how to sharpen your communication skills and use them to help preserve liberty. Find out why our country’s founders made the First Amendment number one in our constitution and what that means if we are to continue to be a free society. Gather with others to learn how to use your voice to stand up for what you believe in. Learn how to be courageous in the face of today’s cancel culture.

You’ll learn practical tips that can be put to work immediately. Use them next time you find yourself in a conversation with someone with a differing point of view. Find out how to best state your case when writing your local blogger or elected representative. You will learn new skills, get a chance to practice them, and gain valuable insights on how to best put them to use.     

Our two-hour seminar is facilitated by Kathleen Chandler and Sheri Tuffield. With their expertise to guide you, you will leave this seminar feeling emboldened and ready to Speak Up and Speak Out—in the name of Liberty!

We all want to turn our country around. But we all can’t run for office or give as much money as we’d like to the people and causes we love. So what can we do? You can turn the tables by investing a few hours a month giving back to your local community. Whether you’re a millennial or a retiree, we need your help! If you volunteer your time on a board or committee, you will have credibility/authority to speak into many issues. As a member of a board or committee you will be heard – you have a captive audience.

Don’t waste your time and breath talking to like-minded friends… make a real difference! Change the Politically Correct culture to the American Culture.
