Lead facilitator Naomi Wolf is the author of seven books including Give Me Liberty and the New York Times bestseller The End of America, which has been adapted as a feature-length documentary. Wolf is the cofounder of the Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership and of the American Freedom Campaign, a U.S. democracy movement.

In a long weekend, a team of professionals will lead a true non-partisan “Democracy 411”. Retreatants will receive a core grounding in the principles of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as well as a refresher on the separation of powers. Furthermore, the retreat will provide participants with intensive modules on how to start a campaign, pressure your representative, create your own media, write op-eds, craft an initiative or referendum, draft a bill, lobby and petition for your most cherished issues, run a protest and excel at public speaking.
