We hope you will join the crew at Ohio Rising in attending the We the People Convention. The We the People Convention will be held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Columbus on Saturday, September 20, 2014 and is open to ALL citizens. Besides providing nationally recognized speakers talking about the important issues of the day, this year’s Convention is providing training for potential candidates and citizens who wish to be trained for various campaign staff positions through a partnership with the Leadership Institute in preparation for the 2015 and 2016 elections. Tickets for both the Convention and the Leadership Institute training can be purchased at www.WethePeopleConvention.org.
To order tickets, visit http://www.wethepeopleconvention.org/tickets/ .
The one day convention, sponsored by Tea Party Patriots, will be host to several speakers including:
- Congressman Jim Jordan
- Buckeye Institute’s Greg Lawson
- Frederick Douglass Foundation Founder Dr. Tim Johnson
- Tea Party Patriots’ Bill Norton
- Turning Point Founder Charlie Kirk
- Rob Ponder from WHBC
- State Representative John Adams
In addition to the speakers at We the People, there is an opportunity to be trained by the Leadership Institute. Two of the biggest problems we have are not enough people to run for elected office and not enough volunteers. The Leadership Institute will be at the convention giving classes on the skills to get attendees ready to run for office and support those running. You will learn skills like fundraising, building coalitions, managing volunteers and working with the media.
Join us Saturday, September 20th.
