“The Activist’s Corner”--Peer-To-Peer Education

Friday, May 29, 2009

You receive the Friday Grassroots Alert, but do you receive NRA-ILA’s free monthly newsletter, “Freedom’s Voice”?  This free publication is a must have for the pro-gun activist, and as with the Grassroots Alert, it is absolutely free! 

Each month in “Freedom’s Voice” we provide:  tips on improving your grassroots activities in your community; a column by Grassroots Director Glen Caroline; and a spotlight feature highlighting outstanding activities by a pro-gun lawmaker.  We also feature “The Activist’s Corner,” where we encourage you to share your own personal experiences in the trenches with other like-minded activists. 

Some of the best ideas and tips we’ve recommended to others concerning grassroots activism have come from you¾our activists in the field, who do the heavy lifting every day.  Through “The Activist’s Corner” section of “Freedom’s Voice”, we hope to share your local grassroots experiences with a national audience and promote a peer-to-peer dialogue, allowing volunteers to learn from their fellow volunteers. 

For “The Activist’s Corner” to succeed, we need to hear from you!  We are looking for firsthand testimonials about your successes as a grassroots activist that we may share with our thousands of readers in the hope that they may increase their effectiveness.  All submissions to “The Activist’s Corner” should be sent to: freedomsvoice@nrahq.org.  Please include your name, address, phone number, e-mail, and if possible, a photo of yourself. While not every submission will be published, all will be reviewed and considered. 

If you currently receive “Freedom’s Voice” electronically every month, keep an eye out for this feature and send us your submission!  If you don’t currently subscribe to this free newsletter, please visit https://secure.nraila.org/Volunteer.aspx and fill out the on-line Volunteer Information Form, or call the NRA-ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-8683.
