The Family Foundation Action continues its grassroots training workshops this weekend and throughout August. It’s not too late to sign up for the Martinsville training event this Saturday. It's all part of TFF Action's 2011 Winning Matters campaign. Winning Matters 2011 is a voter education and mobilization campaign. Just as in 2009, when Winning Matters was instrumental in educating voters on the statewide and House of Delegates candidates' records on traditional values, involvement by grassroots activists is vital to its success. It is your opportunity to help elect a pro-family, pro-life conservative majority in the entire General Assembly — including the Virginia Senate, the graveyard of commonsense reform legislation.

To that end, TFF Action has joined with two of the nation's best grassroots training organizations — The Leadership Institute and American Majority — to bring you several grassroots workshop opportunities in the next several weeks. You'll learn important get-out-the-vote secrets, how to use social media, coalition building and much more. The education is of great practical value, one that you will find of use not only during campaign season but in building up the conservative movement throughout time. The first such workshop, in July in Fredericksburg, was a success, and we know the next several will be as well. So, please plan on joining us at the workshop near you.
