RightOnline is advancing liberty and prosperity for all Americans by leading the way to more effective and informed online activism.
Founded by Americans for Prosperity Foundation, the signature RightOnline Conference brings together industry leaders in the fields of new media, information technology, and advocacy communications. Over two non-stop days, they educate and equip hundreds of committed citizen activists with the tools to win the debates and advance the cause of limited government and free enterprise.
The RightOnline initiative was launched in July of 2008, with more than 600 activists and bloggers attending the first ever RightOnline Conference in Austin, Texas. It was the first conservative alternative to the leftwing Netroots Nation Convention (formerly known as YearlyKos).
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.
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.
