CFACT had the distinct honor of speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library as part of the Leadership Institute’s Youth Leadership School. The Leadership Institute (LI), founded in the late seventies by former Reagan special advisor Morton Blackwell, has established a reputation as the preeminent grassroots advocacy training organization on the conservative side.
LI is known for bringing in some of the best in grassroots advocacy and campaign management to teach the next generation of freedom fighters. CFACT, which has developed a reputation around the globe for its over the top stunts designed to bring attention important issues relating to environmental and energy public policy had the opportunity to demonstrate how these types of efforts can effect positive change. CFACT national field coordinator Greg Neff spoke to the audience of more than seventy students from across the nation leaving a lasting impression. Several students reached out to Greg Neff following the presentation about getting involved at their school. Me of these students, Alvin Guo, espoused how relieved he was to see an organization fighting against climate alarmism. He said, “the accepted science is wrong but if you dare to speak out you are ridiculed making many scared to speak out.”
It was a honor to see CFACT’s contribution to the grassroots conservative fight recognized by such a prestigious organization with the opportunity to such an important place. CFACT will continue to carry on your tradition of grassroots activism and looks forward to working with these new students on their local campuses.
