Lectures

The Citizen Stakeholder

Why do we get excited about a dog park and not city budgets?  Are citizens apathetic about politics or is it they are not alarmed? Do Americans care anymore?

The Citizen Ninja movement is building. More and more people want to engage in local municipal government but don’t know how to start, what to do, or how to speak.

What is a Citizen Ninja? Learn how you can claim your power as a citizen stakeholder, effect change, and have an influence with your local public servants.

Regional Governance vs. Self-Government

We expect our elected public servants to govern for us and not over us. When citizens make the choice to participate in government, America’s representative republic—a government of the people, by the people, and for the people is protected and promoted. We the people consent to be governed by individuals we elect.

Learn how Public Private Partnerships are changing the political landscape and how self-government is being subordinated by regional governance.

America Under Siege

America is under siege by the Sustainable Development agenda. A record number of global leaders signed the United Nation’s Paris Climate Change Accord at an April 22, 2016 ceremony in New York. This agreement will launch the newly devised United Nations Agenda 2030: Transforming Our World which will trickle down to your municipalities in a local to global initiative.

Learn about this agenda and what you can do to run interference at the local level.
