RightOnline, a project founded by Americans for Prosperity Foundation, is an initiative that is dedicated to advancing liberty and prosperity for all Americans through greater citizen participation online.
The RightOnline Conference brings top new media, technology, and messaging experts together with hundreds of committed citizen activists to provide important leadership and grassroots training. This two-day event offers tools to help inspire and more effectively impact those in favor of limited government and free enterprise. The agenda provides a solid program of workshops and training seminars on new media strategies that can be used to mobilize and advance free market policies.
The RightOnline initiative was launched in July of 2008, with more than 600 activists and bloggers attending our first ever RightOnline Conference in Austin, Texas. It was the first conservative event to ever counter the leftwing Netroots Nation Convention (formerly known as YearlyKos), an annual gathering of what the media called the most concentrated gathering of high-profile progressive bloggers to date.
Since then, RightOnline has received extensive media coverage in The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, New York Times, Washington Times, National Journal, C-SPAN, National Public Radio, and many other outlets.
Since its first conference, RightOnline has expanded into a broader initiative that includes state-based and local grassroots training seminars aimed at promoting and increasing citizen participation in the public policy process through the use of online tools.
