2022 CFFS Activity Calendar


Check out our calendar of events, meetings, and trainings hosted by Citizens for Free Speech. We encourage our members to host their own in-person or virtual meet-ups in their states and local communities. 

The First Amendment is predicated on gathering, discussing, persuading, strategizing and speaking out on key issues. Meet-ups can be informal and small or formal and large. In today's environment of face masks and social distancing, small Meetups are more typical. The key thing is to get together in face-to-face groups and develop relationships, plan group activities and protests and encourage one another. 

How to organize a CFFS Meet-up event: Pick a time, date and location. Post the activity on this calendar. Invite a few friends to RSVP. Send some private invitations by Messenger or Text. Start small but then plan to get bigger with the next gathering.

All registered users may log in and submit a calendar event.

NOTE: This is a monitored calendar and is to be used exclusively for CFFS activities. No other events are allowed.

    Citizen Ninja Study Group

    Tuesdays beginning March 1
    Zoom 

    4:30 PM PT
    5:30 PM MT
    6:30 PM CT
    7:30 PM ET
    Study Group Ambassadors: Abel Gamez & Edward Lapinski

    Citizen Ninja Study Groups are informal gatherings of people from local communities led by sanctioned CFFS Citizen Ninja Ambassadors who convene regularly to learn how to become effective activists by studying the Citizen Ninja Way.

    The Citizen Ninja Way is a method of activism that uses effective strategies, tactics, and tools resulting in positive change at the local level. It is designed for concerned Americans who recognize they have a duty to engage in the civic process but are unsure how to go about it or are fearful of bully tactics being used against them.

    What You Will Learn

    We don’t teach you about which issues to pursue, although many examples will be shared along the way. Rather, we teach you how to effectively communicate and influence in any situation. Successful local activism depends on your knowledge of and mastery over, the basics. Some things you will learn include:

    • How to discuss controversial topics with anyone
    • How to permanently alleviate your fears
    • How to handle bullies in the public square
    • How to stage your discourse to manage different situations
    • How to influence your audience

    Benefits you will enjoy

    Some of the benefits of joining a Citizen Ninja Study Group include fellowship with like-minded cohorts who support the values of self government—a government of, for, and by the people. As you practice your new Citizen Ninja skills, you will be amazed at the results you can achieve! You will also enjoy:

    • Exchanging ideas and information
    • Role playing
    • Sharing activism experiences

    Your commitment

    Citizen Ninja Study Groups meet at regular intervals for six months to cover the entire Citizen Ninja Way training. Meeting materials include a syllabus, training topics, access to training videos, a study guide, and free membership to CFFS and its community organizing social network site, localactivist.org.

    Participants are encouraged to purchase the accompanying text: Citizen Ninja, Stand Up to Power.

    Please RSVP below. Space is limited. Even if you are not able to join us for every session, we encourage you to join us when you can. You can also take the Citizen Ninja course on-demand on your schedule on our collaborative and e-learning platform, Local Activist.

    Hybrid Event -- Online and In-Person

    CFFS National Town Hall

    Please be sure to complete RSVP form at bottom of page

    Join Us for the Fall CFFS Town Hall!

    The live streaming event will begin at 5 PM PT/6 PM MT/7 PM CT/ 8 PM ET on the CFFS channel at Rumble.com/user/cffs. 

    A Hybrid National Town Hall

    Although CFFS will use virtual technology to broadcast into homes and businesses across America, we are calling on everyone to invite people into their living rooms to be able to watch together. This will encourage local discussion, personal networking and ideas on how to act locally. Free Speech and local assembly are the cornerstones of the First Amendment.

    The National Town Hall speakers to be announced soon!

    Concrete Solutions and How To Achieve Them

    We will offer tangible, concrete measures on how ordinary citizens can fight back against censorship, especially in their local communities; first by personally exercising their own First Amendment rights and secondly, by working through local government to restore all rights contained in the First Amendment.

    Please RSVP below. We will send out instructions on how to access the live event just as soon as those are finalized.
