Weekly Citizen Ninja Study Group
Tuesdays beginning February 22
Casa Reynoso, Tempe, AZ
Study Group Ambassador: Mary Bevilacqua
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
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.
