Founded in 1992, Citizen Outreach Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization established for charitable and educational purposes.  The goals of the organization are to…

Citizen Outreach Foundation generally supports public policies that protect individual freedom, limits government, provides for a strong national defense and encourages free market capitalism.10

To that end, Citizen Outreach Foundation seeks to increase awareness and participation in the governing process in a number of ways…

Citizen Outreach also helps grassroots conservatives get involved in the policy-making process by explaining issues in a way the average “non-lawyer” can understand and make it easy for citizens to take action and make a difference in governing decisions.

 

At Citizen Outreach, we put the public back in public policy.

PROJECTS

Campaign Training: Citizen Outreach sponsors and conducts both online and in-person training workshops for conservative activists, party leaders, campaign workers and candidates so as to boost the effectiveness of grassroots lobbying and improve the chances of conservative candidates being elected to office.

Nevada News & Views: Citizen Outreach’s conservative online “newspaper” focusing on candidates, issues and current events largely overlooked by the traditional “mainstream” media. NN&V also recruits and trains “citizen journalists” so that the conservative movement’s limited-government/pro-business messaging grows and spreads.

“Politics on the Rocks”: An informal meet-and-greet “happy hour” event that Citizen Outreach has hosted since 2009. It’s an opportunity for like-minded conservatives and libertarians to network without the hassles and aggravation of a typical political party meeting.

Conservative Leadership Conference: Citizen Outreach has hosted this conference in Nevada since 2007; featuring state and national conservative leaders, policy makers and elected officials.

Brushfire Alerts: Citizen Outreach regularly activates its grassroots network of “citizen lobbyists” to call, email, text, fax and otherwise communicate with legislators at the state and federal levels on conservative issues.

Center-Right Coalition Meetings: Citizen Outreach co-hosts Nevada’s monthly “Center-Right Coalition” (CRC) meeting; a state-based version of the “Wednesday Meeting” hosted weekly by Americans for Tax Reform in Washington, DC.

Taxpayer Protection Pledge: Citizen Outreach is Nevada’s “Keeper of the Pledge,” not only encouraging candidates to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, but holding their feet to the fire once elected. We are philosophically opposed to all tax hikes that would result in a net increase in funding for the government.

Reagan Legacy Project: Citizen Outreach is leading an effort in Nevada to memorialize the spirit and achievements of President Ronald Wilson Reagan by naming at least one significant landmark in the state and every county to preserve the legacy of the 40th U.S. president.
