What we're about

San Francisco Liberty Coalition is a monthly event series supported by a loose network of local groups that are working to promote liberty in some area or areas of public policy (any group fighting for civil liberties, economic freedom, or both, across the board or on a specific issue or issues).

Our purpose is to give anyone who has an issue around which they'd like to see more freedom in San Francisco the opportunity to come and connect with others who care about this issue, as well as to learn more about the pro-freedom issues that others are working on, and to make your voice heard in local politics.

Event Description
-------------------------
Admission to Town Hall Caucus events will be $2 at the door ("your 2¢", adjusted for inflation since the Fed took over the money in 1913!), or free with an invite from a Coalition member group.

Each evening will include both participatory caucusing, and some form of presentation (e.g. speakers, pro-freedom videos, panel discussions, performances, workshops, etc.).

Speakers invited to appear may include:

• persons knowledgeable about topics relevant to the struggle for freedom
• victims of government oppression
• local activists and community organizers
• candidates for public office
• government officials

5) Meet with your Caucus! (705pm-745pm)

SF Liberty Coalition member group benefits & responsibilities
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Any locally active group whose mission is broadly libertarian (supports both civil liberties and economic freedom positions), or single-issue group that brings a pro-freedom perspective to its main area(s) of focus, are eligible to be part of the SF Liberty Coalition.

Groups in the coalition will have the opportunity to send a representative to give an update for the group at SF Liberty Coalition events, solicit and receive donations at our events, be included on event signage and fliers, recommend or provide speakers and films for the events, receive free event invites to distribute to their supporters, and be listed as a member/sponsor on the SF Liberty Coalition Meetup page with a link to the group's website.

In exchange, coalition groups will designate a liaison to represent them at SF Liberty Coalition events, inform their members/supporters about the events and help spread the word.

If you belong to or know of a group in the San Francisco area whose mission involves trying to expand freedom or reduce the size/cost/scope or power of government in some way (or many different ways!), please contact the SF Liberty Coalition Meetup organizer, or encourage the leaders of your group to get in touch, about becoming a participating organization.
