Join EmpowerU Managing Board Member Dan Regenold who will be speaking at the Northern Kentucky Tea Party Meeting starting about 7:15 PM–all are welcome. You will be immersed in a lively discussion as he repeats his Fall 2017 class on the much talked about Saul Alinsky in Kentucky. Alinsky is generally considered the founder of modern community organizing and is often cited for the success of the Democratic Party under President Barack Obama. In the course of his lifetime Alinsky has received much praise and criticism for improving the living conditions of poor communities across America. William F. Buckley, Jr. said in 1966 that Alinsky was “very close to being an organizational genius.”

Specifically we will look at Alinsky’s 1971 book Rules for Radicals. Rules for Radicals was written as a primer for how the “Have-Nots” could take away power from the Haves. What are the 13 rules Alinsky outlined? How can Alinsky’s rules be used to accomplish goals that you or your organization have? Are they just rules for Radicals and the European Socialists or do Alinsky’s rules apply to Conservaties and others? Join us for our great discussion and video on what Alinsky refers to as “A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals”. Be ready…you are going to have to work hard at this class!
