SESSION 2

“Sharing Freedom by Storytelling”

To engage people about issues at the deepest level, you need a story that allows people to relate and feel empathy, compassion, and trust.

In this session, you will master the effective tools that activists use across multiple platforms to communicate the case for freedom and inspire others to join the cause.

SESSION 4

SESSION 5

“Human Action and the History of Grassroots”

Throughout history, small groups of highly organized individuals have successfully risen to change the world against unorganized majorities. In this session, you’ll learn how to apply the six primary ingredients needed to run successful grassroots movements and draw on the lessons from Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises’ “Human Action Model.”
