Your On-Line Grasroots Resource Center

Friday, December 16, 2005

Readers of the Grassroots Alert are no doubt familiar with the many features of NRA-ILA's website-- www.NRA.ILA.org.  But as a grassroots volunteer, do you know how to drill down within the website to find what you, as an activist, specifically need?  Here's a brief primer on the grassroots resources available to you at www.NRAILA.org.

Once on the home page, scroll to the bottom and check out the "Grassroots Activism" section that highlights some of the more current information and programs provided by ILA's Grassroots Division.

On the right hand column, you'll see a link called "Get Involved Locally." By choosing this option, you will be routed to a page that houses most of ILA's grassroots specific resources and programs.  This page will feature information on our "Second Amendment Activist Centers;" on how to enroll in ILA's free grassroots volunteer program, NRA-ILA FrontLines™; and on the NRA-ILA EVC program, including a function that allows you to identify your specific EVC either by using a map of the U.S. or by entering your zip code.

But don't leave the "Get Involved Locally" section without checking out the features that appear in the right hand column, under the heading "Grassroots Activism."  Here you will find additional  information on ILA Grassroots' programs and training materials, including video of various Grassroots Workshops.  Just beneath the "Grassroots Activism" section, choose your state to get information on registering to vote (updated each election year when dates and deadlines are announced).  And finally, periodically check the "Event Calendar" to learn of any events or workshops being held in your area.

Of course, ILA's website is your place for one-stop-shopping for all of ILA's resources and materials, including information on federal and state legislation, fact sheets on gun-related issues, links to contacting your lawmakers and editors of newspapers, hunting information, and relevant news stories.  And of course, the NRA-ILA Grassroots Alerts are archived on the website and can be accessed by choosing the "Grassroots Alert" tab on the toolbar that appears atop every page you visit while at www.NRAILA.org.

The information posted at www.NRAILA.org is constantly being updated, so please visit frequently, and use the aforementioned tools to enhance your level of activism in your community.  And don't forget to share this information with your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners as well!
