What Our Members Say
"Being a member of AF has given me the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals around the country, find opportunities for education and career advancement I never knew were out there, and enable me to make an impact on my community for the liberty movement. It's truly been a force multiplier for me, and for those around me."
"AF membership is the cathartic relief from being alone in my thoughts. AF feels like a group of helping mentors who can guide me to take responsible actions that will affect the world in a way that I want to see it grow into, and a future for me to help its future members in the same way."
"America’s Future has been so instrumental in my professional development! They offer a variety of events and workshops that tailor to members’ needs from participating in virtual discussions on pertinent issues to kickstarting careers. The AF community has been so welcoming, and I am elated that I can channel my activism efforts in my professional sphere."
Have Questions About The Program?
What Does AF Hope To Accomplish With This Membership?
We have a huge problem in our country. We’re slipping to tyranny and there is little to no local, liberty-based organizations or communities – in the civic or political sphere – that are addressing it. The liberty movement does great work on the state and federal level with policy and campaigns. However, when it comes to policy, politics, or culture change on the local level, we’ve ceded to those who believe more elitist control will solve our country’s problems. That has to change. We will achieve change by empowering AF members with the right tools, resources, knowledge, and relationships to make change a reality, regardless of where they live in the country, and regardless of whether they have an hour or 10 hours a month in their bandwidth. By building up lifelong advocates, supporting young leaders, and building robust communities that believe in freedom, we know we can turn the tide where it matters most.
Is The Membership Primarily Devoted To Civic Activism?
It depends on how you define “civic activism”. The membership is geared towards members making a difference by shifting culture towards liberty, and civic activism is a huge part of that. This could mean becoming better at messaging your beliefs, or building your professional skills sets to get that next promotion or better job. If you want to go as far as becoming a community organizer, running for office, or launching your own movement, we’re here for that too. Everyone’s bandwidth and interests are different. We’re here to support you no matter how you want to make a difference and how much time you have to do so.
What Does The In-Person Portion Of Membership Look Like?
At this time, the only in-person aspect to the membership is with our Hub Membership. Each Hub region has a Hub headquarters where we have in-person membership offerings. For the Northeast Hub, it’s Rhode Island. For the Southwest Hub, it’s Phoenix. For the Capital Area Hub, it’s Washington, D.C. To reach people anywhere they are in the country, however, our national membership programming and offerings are completely virtual for the moment. We are launching more Hubs and expanding national membership benefits in 2021, so stay tuned!
What’s A Good Way To Connect With Other Members?
We connect all members in our Members-Only Facebook group, and you will also receive a directory with your fellow members names and email addresses. Let us know if you want to test building this online community on other apps and platforms. We will also offer networking and relationship-building socials in the near future to help members connect!
How Can I Start An AF Chapter In My Region?
We’re not accepting applications to start Chapters at the moment. If you’re interested in getting more involved in your community with AF, the best way is to become a Community Circle Leader, completing Calls to Action, and brainstorming engagement opportunities with AF staff and other members. If you’re interested in being a part of a group to test AF grassroots, community, and leadership engagement roles, please contact Rhachel@americasfuture.org.
What Kind Of Topics Will Events Address?
All kinds! Issue education, skill building, motivational, and professional development are just some of the buckets we offer for member events. Essentially, we want to give you events and resources that actually matter to you and empower you to make a difference. Your feedback and ideas are crucial to ensuring we have the best content available for you.
