Wolf-PAC Virtual Warrior Workshop

Virtual Warrior Workshop

Our government serves the interests of the wealthy rather than the people as a whole for the simple fact that money has too great an influence in American elections. For over 10 years, we at Wolf-PAC have been working to fight this systemic corruption and, while we haven’t yet achieved our ultimate goal, we have learned one very important lesson. Our elected officials will never fix this system until an organized movement of people has the size and the power to make them.

The time has come to accept no more excuses. We know the work that needs to be done to grow this movement, organize the millions of Americans who suffer in a million different ways from this corrupt system, and win the change we need with our own hands. We know none of this will fundamentally change without your active participation.

Don’t wait. Sign up, get trained, and let’s do the work!

Your online ticket gives you the ability to:

  • Get “inside” the virtual conference for the entire day.
  • Participate in hands-on Organizing training.
  • Access to breakout rooms to participate in Organizing exercises.
  • Participate in Q and A sessions with our speakers and panelists.
  • Play a variety of games and attend special sessions.
  • Vote in live polls during panels and interactive events.

Your Contribution will Make a Difference

There is no charge to attend and participate in Wolf-PAC's 2021 Virtual Warrior Workshop. However, this movement relies financially on the voluntary contributions of people like you. If this movement is to grow and achieve the size and power required to win the change we need, we need people like you to step up with what you can. If you would be willing to make a contribution in addition to your registration, it would be deeply appreciated.

Funds go directly to Wolf-PAC and the fight to end corruption. Funds will be used to expand staff and educate the public about the urgent need for a U.S. Constitutional Amendment to fix our corrupt campaign finance system and restore a truly representative government in America.

Building a Coalition that will WIN

Join Larry Lessig, Nina Turner, and Jim Rubens

Changing our government so that it works for the American People alone is a monumentally difficult task. Yet, through American history, great change has been won by massive unstoppable movements of people.

Join Professor Larry Lessig, godfather of the campaign finance reform movement, as he talks with former Democratic State Senator Nina Turner and former Republican State Senator Jim Rubens about building a coalition of people large enough to win the change we seek. What does that coalition look like, how do we build it, and how do we all work together? We're as excited to find out as you are.

📖☕ Morning Coffee and Book Discussion: “No Shortcuts''

Join Wolf-PAC Leaders for some morning coffee and discuss the book No Shortcuts, Organizing for Power in the New Gilded Age by Dr. Jane F. McAlevey.

McAlevey, an experienced community, electoral, and labor organizer, presents a dozen case studies of unions and social movements seeking to effect change in the twenty-first century. As she analyzes each case, she identifies the reasons for the movement’s success or failure. This book investigates the reasons behind the recent failures of unions and lays out a way forward!
