Distribute information about the FSP to friends, family, and fellow pro-freedom political activists at liberty-friendly events, gun shows, rallies, meetings, wherever. We have brochures, flyers, etc. plus documents (like the Statement of Intent, Participation Guidelines, and FAQs). All are available on the Downloads page. Pre-printed brochures and other merchandise are available at the FSP Store. We have lots of cool logo stuff to give away as gifts or souvenirs.
Work through your FSP local group, or contact the FSP Events Coordinator to request resources, such as a speaker, merchandise, or partial funding.
Speak: Contact libertarian-friendly groups, such as your local Libertarian or Constitution Party chapter, and ask them to invite someone from the Free State Project to speak at one of their events.
If you want to be trained to represent the FSP yourself, write the Speakers Bureau Coordinator, noting your public relations or public speaking experience.
Be the Media! Call or e-mail your local talk radio and mention the FSP when the topic is appropriate. Write a letter to the editor about or mentioning the Free State Project. We provide samples and ideas!
Publish: Write an article about or referring to the FSP, preferably in a periodical or web site with a high number of libertarian-leaning readers. If you want to publish an essay on the FSP web site, send it to Steve Cobb.
Use the Web: Talk up the FSP on the internet discussion forums you frequent. If you have a web site, link to FreeStateProject.org - see our banners page for banners you can use to link. Arrange and finance FSP advertisements in your favorite periodical, radio show, blog, e-zine, or web site.
Golden Porcupine: We recognize the efforts of our most outstanding recruiters by bestowing the Golden Porcupine award on any person who successfully recruits three new Participants.
Lights of Liberty: The Advocates for Self-Government will list you as a Light of Liberty if you run three Operation Politically Homeless booths, write three libertarian-themed LTEs, or speak three times about libertarianism to non-libertarian audiences. Be sure to document your activities, preferably with photographs!
Certain skills are always in demand, especially designers. We need people willing to design ads, bumper stickers, and various merchandise items. See our Design Center for more info.
If you can commit to longer-term responsibility for a function, the FSP organization has a growing list of titled positions that need filling. As you might expect of libertarians, we are a decentralized organization, not about hierarchy and power, so we are always looking for opportunities to share the action. See the current openings!
For more information, contact the Volunteer Coordinator .
Join a Local Group
Start or participate in a Local Group. See also our Local Groups forum if your area is not yet represented on the local groups page. Local Groups can apply all the usual Publicity methods, but focused on their local area.
Connect with a Community
If you are a member of a community (religious, ethnic, interest) with a significant number of libertarian sympathizers, consider representing the FSP to them as a Community Liaison. Apply all the usual Publicity suggestions, but focused on your group.
Donate some money to help us meet advertising and publicity expenses. No one in the FSP draws a salary (though we would like to hire some paid help), but advertising and publicity projects cost money.
There are a million small things you can do, like putting the FSP slogan and URL in your email signature.
See our page of A-Z Actions for more small things you can do to help the FSP!
