R & D team
Identify and research issues for upcoming Tea Party meetings. Research upcoming events scheduled by other groups for possible collaboration. Suggest experts to invite as in-person or web cam speakers. Suggest ideas for rallies, protests, and other events.
Build up tea party membership in community via street events, promo literature, media contacts. Contact new members and introduce them to our group. Maintain and update membership lists.
New Citizens Outreach: Form teams to (1) attend the swearing in ceremonies for new U.S. citizens, (2) provide them with compelling materials in their native language about tea party principles, (3) register them to vote, and (4) invite them to a free event such as a BBQ to celebrate their citizenry and talk to them about tea party principles and values.
Community Education- Teams go into different communities (e.g., Latino, Asian, black, church) and speak with them about timely policy issues that are important to that community. We would also weave in information about the U.S. Constitution, tea party values, and how those principles and values can empower them in their everyday lives.
School Education- Teams go into schools (likely private and charter) and give presentations on the U.S. Constitution, our Founding Fathers, and U.S. history and how the principles and values upon which our country was founded can empower them in their everyday lives.
Continue development of our website functionality and utility. Explore ways to enhance tea party visibility on the internet.
Videotape and/or photograph tea party meetings, rallies, and other events. Create original videos about tea party issues for youtube and vimeo. Feature videos on our tea party website.

Write brief persuasive talking points for member use in one on one advocacy. Archive on website.
