“The Liberty Bell is inscribed with the words ‘Proclaim Liberty Throughout All The Land,’ and it is in the spirit of this exhortation that I heartily endorse the Lights of Liberty awards! I urge every libertarian candidate, campaign worker, newsletter editor and activist to get the word out about these awards — and qualify, too! Let’s use Lights of Liberty to spread the word about the Blessings of Liberty to all America.”
David F. Nolan, Libertarian Party co-founder, inventor of the Nolan Chart used on the World’s Smallest Political Quiz
Lights of Liberty is a program by the Advocates for Self-Government to recognize and reward outstanding libertarian grassroots volunteer work — and to stimulate more of that vital work.
Since 1998, Lights of Liberty winners have taken libertarian ideas to millions of Americans – and changed the face of American politics in the process. We hope you join them!
How it Works
Every day, libertarian activists just like you are spreading the message of freedom. They are writing letters in influential newspapers. They are speaking to community leaders. And they are identifying thousands of new libertarians with Operation Politically Homeless.
You are making a difference. And we want to reward you for it.
All you have to do is let us know when you complete a qualifying outreach activity. So what’s a qualifying activity you ask? That’s easy:
- You published a letter or article that specifically mentions “libertarian” or “libertarianism” in any non-libertarian newspaper or magazine.
- You worked an Operation Politically Homeless booth for a minimum of two (2) hours.
- You delivered a speech to a predominantly non-libertarian group that specifically mentions “libertarian” or “libertarianism.”
Every time you submit a qualifying activity, you’re automatically entered in a drawing to win great prizes like classic liberty books, cutting edge outreach tools, and exclusive Advocates products. The more you do, the better your chances.
But that’s Not All
If you submit three (3) qualifying libertarian outreach activities in a single calendar year, you’ll win the Advocates for Self-Government’s Lights of Liberty Award. This award has been endorsed and applauded by local, state, and national libertarian leaders like former Libertarian Party presidential candidate Harry Browne.
In addition to entering the prize drawing (with even more chances to win), you will get a signed letter of congratulations and an award certificate. You will also get discounts to the Advocates Liberty Store and a free subscription to the Advocates Insider newsletter.
You’re name will also appear on the Winners page so your story can inspire other libertarian activists to greatness.
Lights of Liberty winners can mix-and-match any combination of the vital activities they submit. If you give two speeches and work and OPH booth you’ll win the award. And you’ll get it if you write three letters too.
But if you do at least three (3) activities in ALL three qualifying categories, you’ll win the coveted Lights of Liberty Triathlon Award.
You are a Torchbearer for Freedom
You are changing the face of politics in America. Because of your work millions of people are embracing the ideas of Liberty. We at the Advocates think you deserve to be recognized for the impact your making.
But you can’t win unless you tell us about the amazing things you’re achieving in your community. So what are you waiting for? Submit your libertarian outreach activities today!
