Are you ready to stop complaining and do something? We need you to get on the field and off the sideline.

The Local Government Project class will help you see where and how you can make a difference in your community. This practical class will give you ideas and point you in a productive direction. Stop complaining and take back your country by taking back your community.

We will discuss the importance of activism, the why you need to be part of the solution, and the practical how to find information of being appointed to a board or commission. Do you know there are over 4,000 governments up and down the front range? Did you know you can help rein in government overreach by just volunteering your time? Is that too much to ask of you as you defend our liberty and the future of Colorado?

Come join us as we explore how you can take the initiative and curtail the maddening overreach of government.



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 Independence 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!

If you ran for office last election cycle and were disappointed in the outcome, don’t hang up your cleats! We need you to get on the field and off the sideline. This workshop will teach the skills you will need to apply for local and statewide positions and to serve as an effective leader. The training will cover the board/commission application process, what to expect once you are on a board, and the ongoing support we offer to you as you serve your community. This workshop will help you get appointed or elected so you can grow your influence statewide. It is hosted by Kathleen Chandler, Coordinator of Independence Institute Local Government Project and Jan Cook, political activist.

To be announced

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.
