About This Course

This five-session course is tailored to help you create your own strategy to take over your city council, mayorship, school board, or any other local elected body. Based on the early history of how the Richmond Progressive Alliance got started, it is the fastest way to build a strong, long-lasting coalition that can fill local government with true representatives of the people and send them on to state and national politics.
