Our America Initiative
Redefining the liberty movement in America!
Colorado- March, 2015. Join Our America Initiative at Colorado's General Assembly on Monday, March 16, to lobby representatives and senators on several bills including one to repeal Common Core standardization of K-12 education (HB 1208), another to stand up for the rights of parents in their children's education and health decisions (SB 077), a bill to stop the forfeiture of defendants' assets without even a conviction (SB 006), and a proposal to reverse the arbitrary limit on ammunition rendering almost meaningless the constitutional right of armed defense (SB 175). We'll start at 1:30pm in HCR 01112 (the House Education Committee), where OAI director Lily Williams will provide a handout. You are welcome to support other libertarian-leaning bills as well. In addition to joining Ms. Williams for Lobby Day, anyone can participate at home - either by sending an email to your reps and senators on behalf of these four bills, or by emailing your politicians a request to meet in their district offices to support the proposals. Contact director Williams please for more information on Lobby Day.
Florida- March, 2015. Our America Initiative invites supporters to the Capitol in Tallahassee, Wednesday, March 25th, 9:00 a.m., at The Plaza Level Rotunda in the Capitol located at 400 South Monroe Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399. Our America, with partner organizations Florida Citizen Alliance, the Libertarian Party and others, will seek repeal of the federal government's Common Core takeover of K-12 education standards, regulatory relief for our local craft breweries, defense of property rights from planning councils and revenue schemes, repeal of marijuana prohibition for physician prescriptions, and affirmation of our second amendment rights. If you want to speak on other, needed libertarian changes in any law, please come and advocate what motivates you to be active. We will have handouts for meetings you need to schedule prior to your arrival; click here for contact info for your representative and senator. Participation in a Lobby Day doesn't require your presence in the Capitol, actually. On any day while the legislature is in session, you can email the handout to your legislators, or you can ask to meet them in their district office near you. Please post at Our America's FL Facebook page any results from your advocacy. With your donation and input from our Advisory Councils, Our America Initiative will advocate more issues in Florida, nationally and through our other forty-nine state affiliates. Join us please, and don't hesitate to mail Our America's director listed on this page for more information.
