2017 was a big year for American Majority as we opened new offices, trained conservatives across the country, and helped thousands make real changes in their community. Today we release our 2017 Annual Report (PDF) recapping every project and initiative, laying the groundwork for 2018 and beyond. American Majority’s CEO Ned Ryun:
It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years since American Majority launched. Our Team has traveled thousands of miles, trained thousands of people, and yet there are many miles and trainings left to go before we get this country back on track.
The Progressive Movement at the turn of the 20th century began as a state and local reform movement, rising from a very local level to the highest seats of power in Washington, DC. In the course of roughly 25 years, that state-based movement eventually changed our government, and in so doing, our society. We must undo the damage progressives have done for the last 100 years, but in order to do that we have to stay committed to change that rises at the local level to create a groundswell that brings national, generational change. That’s why I get excited about thousands of activists getting trained every year, with hundreds being specifically trained to run for state and local office. Every person trained causes a ripple effect that spreads, that brings change.
So with the end of another year, and the beginning of a new one, we once again put our hands to the plow and commit to doing the right work–the real work–that brings lasting change.
