From their website,
Freedom Academy 3.0 is intended to teach ordinary citizens how to participate in civic affairs more effectively. How to run for office, and how to help and support those running for office – what to expect, and what to watch out for.
This is the third year Freedom Foundation has offered this program, and the second year the Whatcom Tea Party has sponsored it locally. Although the focus will be power to the people and individual liberty, anyone is welcome to attend – regardless of your political stripe. The information presented is practical, not ideological.
