Countering Project Blitz -- the State Legislative Agenda of the Christian Right

Sometimes even formidable opponents give us a gift that keeps on giving. Project Blitz is an aggressive state legislative program by elements of the Christian Right, comprising 20 model bills. In 2016, about 70 were introduced, and some passed. Scores of state and national organizations have come together across issue areas to find common approaches to fight this. But their 16 page legislative manual, first exposed by workshop organizer Frederick Clarkson, provides a one-document crash course in how the Christian Right connects the dots of its issues and religious/political vision. The Project Blitz playbook provides talking points and the background research they use to justify and advance their agenda. Come hear how veterans of social justice activism are learning from and using this material in this year's state legislative sessions -- and how you can connect to the ongoing organizing campaigns.
